Steel material has changed our world like no other substance. New high-performance steel is used in everything from the structure of the building you are standing in to the solid rocket booster casings that allow shuttle astronauts to explore new frontiers. Each piece Steel, LLC makes is engineered to fit precise specifications. Accurately described on www.steel.org, steel is “an industry where product quantity is measured by the millions of tons, but quality is measured by the millionth of an inch.”
That same precision applies to the processes employed throughout today’s steel plant. Steel, LLC is part of a truly high-tech industry, with automation and advanced technologies driving the way we do business. Some of the most advanced technologies available are utilized throughout the steelmaking process, which enables the industry to maximize efficiency while minimizing the industry’s environmental footprint.
- Today, the American steel industry operates with the lowest energy consumption per ton of steel in the world.
- The American steel industry has reduced its CO2 emissions per ton of steel shipped by 30% since 1990.
- Because of the industry’s voluntary investments in R&D and resulting new technologies, American steelmaking processes are highly optimized.
New processes are developed which will revolutionize steelmaking and take advantage of alternative energy sources, which Steel, LLC is actively pursuing.
