Our raw material

Steel is the most recycled material in the world and in North America alone; more than 80 million tons of steel are recycled or exported for recycling annually. The process used to make steel at Vinton Steel, LLC – EAF technology – is unique in that it’s based upon reusing “old”, or scrap, steel. In the EAF steelmaking process, up to 100 percent steel scrap can be used as feedstock in the melting process. On average, Vinton Steel, LLC recycles nearly 240,000 net tons of scrap steel each year and is the largest metal recycler in the area.
