If you’ve owned a steel building in the past, or even if you’ve just been researching building options, you probably already know some of the benefits of steel: strength, durability, and value.
But did you know steel is the #1 most recycled material in the world? According to the Steel Recycling Institute, between 60 and 80 million tons of scrap steel are recycled every year by North American steel mills into new steel products and components. In this way, scrap steel is a crucial ingredient in producing new steel.
Our building kits at American Steel Carports are made of approximately 94% recycled steel, all of it sourced from American steel mills. Using recycled steel gives our customers all the great features of steel—lighter yet stronger than other building materials, resistant to all types of weather, flexible design, and more—with the added benefits that come from recycling. These advantages include:
Performance. Because of the inherent properties of steel, it can be repeatedly recycled from one use or product to another without compromising its structural integrity or performance.
Environmental impact. Recycling steel reduces the amount of resources consumed and emissions produced in the process of creating steel products, lowering its impact on our environment and our planet.
Economy. Not having to produce completely new steel for every new product also reduces the cost of steel products to consumers—enhancing the already great value of this high-quality building material.
American manufactured. American Steel is proud to use American steel. As U.S. steel mills use largely recycled materials, buying recycled steel is an important part of keeping money and jobs in our country and our communities.
