Over the past 20 years sustainable building practices and outcomes have moved from theory to practice. Structural steel being a prime green construction material, structural steel products are comprised of recycled steel scrap with the steel industry being the largest recycler of waste by mass in the United States. Fabricated structural steel used for structural framing systems has an average recycled content of 93%. The success of steel recycling is a great example of sustainable practices on an industry wide scale. Over the past three decades, the steel industry has reduced greenhouse gas and overall emissions by 36% and increased the water recycling rate of steel production to 95%.
