Steel recycling and energy conservation

Bruce Hannon, James R. Brodrick

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The potential for energy conservation through increased use of steel scrap by the U.S. steel industry is examined. It is concluded that increased use of scrap would reduce energy use, but it is not economical, due mainly to volatile scrap prices. Other energy-saving technologies exist, but it is likely that energy will be conserved through reduced use of steel as rising energy costs are passed through to consumers.
