Recycling Fuels Our Flames


U.S. Green Building Council Member

As the largest domestic recycler, Nucor has had a major role in the documented reduction of carbon equivalent emissions. The Electric Arc Furnace technology utilized by Nucor uses post-consumer scrap steel material as the major feedstock, which, in turn, produces sixty-seven percent (67%) less carbon equivalent emissions than those produced by the current predominant steelmaking technology.

Nucor has steel and steel products manufacturing facilities throughout North America that are often within 500 miles of almost any project site.
