The American steel industry isn’t what you’d think. And for good reason. For over a quarter century, electric arc furnace (EAF) steelmaking has made steel greener, safer and the most energy efficient in the world today. Over 70% of all steel made in America is sustainably produced using electric arc furnaces. EAF steel is the backbone of our country. And the strength of American EAF steel is continuously cast by the members of SMA – the Steel Manufacturers Association.
