the Association said that the steel industry in the United States since 1990 has reduced its energy intensity by 35% and CO2 emission intensity of 37% per tonne of steel shipped.
According to the Agency for environmental protection of the United States for the period 1996 to 2016 the American steel sector has reduced air emissions by almost 80%.
"Each year, the steel industry saves the energy equivalent for the expense of processing, capable of providing electric power to 18 million households," - said in AISI.
In 2016, the recycling of steel in the United States has provided 180 000 jobs, with salaries of more than 8 billion dollars, and the taxes paid almost $ 2 billion.
