Significantly more energy efficient than traditional steelmaking, electric arc furnace (EAF) steel is made by using an electrical current to melt scrap steel and/or other recycled metals. The process isn’t anything new. While other industries scramble to develop new green initiatives and sustainable solutions, EAF steelmakers have been using recycled materials and running efficiently for decades.
American EAF steelmakers are not to be confused with other steelmakers. We are innovative, one of a kind and have prioritized our people and our planet first in our operations for decades.
American EAF steel creates a positive impact everywhere. On our workers, our climate, our communities and our planet. The steel we make today will be remade and recycled again and again. American steel is on the right path. A sustainable path that is leading us towards a cleaner, more prosperous future.
Ecofriendly Economic Growth
American EAF steelmakers meld together science, technology, data and creativity to cast new paths, new solutions and new opportunities. The strength of sustainable steel grows our domestic economy, business community, infrastructure and hundreds of steel dependent products we use daily.
