Do you know your steel?


Do You Know Your Steel?

The power of making informed choices begins with knowing your steel and since not all steel is created equal, the origin of your steel matters.

By understanding the process of how your steel is made and where it comes from, you feel empowered to choose steel that doesn’t compromise sustainability.

Metl-Span’s commitment to sustainability is embedded in the DNA of our products, making us the perfect manufacturing partner to help you invest in the future of your next building project.

For over 50 years, Nucor has pioneered the circular steelmaking industry by using electric arc furnaces (EAF), recycling scrap into new steel. EAFs melt up to 100% recycled scrap metal to make new steel as steel can be infinitely recycled without compromising quality. Unlike the traditional extractive steelmaking process, Metl-Span sources the majority of its steel from electric arc furnaces (EAF)* as of 2024. Nucor steel products are made from an average of 77.3% recycled content, with some products containing almost 100% recycled content. EAFs have revolutionized the steel making industry, paving the way for a greener economy.
