In advancing a more sustainable world, our product – steel – has a critical role to play. Our modern society depends on the inherent durability and recyclability of steel. Through technical innovation in our manufacturing processes and in the products we make, we are maximizing the sustainable value of iron and steel to benefit our customers and society.
The American steel industry is the cleanest and most energy-efficient of the seven largest steel producing countries*.
Steel is the most recycled material in the world*.
All steel contains recycled content and is 100 percent recyclable at end of life. These characteristics of steel make it an ideal material for the circular economy
Our innovative products produce clean steel.
Advancements in using direct reduced iron (DRI) and hot briquetted iron (HBI) in place of pig iron are increasing productivity and reducing GHG emissions in steelmaking.
