New advanced steel grades are the lightweight automotive material that best addresses society’s need for reduced greenhouse gas emissions, without compromising safety, performance or affordability.
Steel offers the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material, with substantial discounts on builders risk insurance.
Keeping a well-stocked pantry with nutrient-rich choices on hand allows Americans to always have healthy choices available all year.
Steel poles are light in weight, easy to install, and require minimal maintenance, making their jobs easier and cutting costs for utility companies.
eSPAN140 provides bridge owners, designers, and county/consulting/state engineers with a single resource to find optimized steel solutions for their projects.
See what our members and customers have to say about the value of collaboration between the automotive/steel industries and how the knowledge gathered at Great Designs in Steel helps them achieve their performance, safety, lightweighting and sustainability goals.
The Steel Recycling Institute released the first industry-wide Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Cold-Formed Steel Studs and Track manufactured in the United States and Canada. The EPD quantifies the “cradle-to-gate” life cycle environmental impacts of these products, and can be used by architects and engineers to document these impacts. The EPD, based on a peer-reviewed life cycle assessment (LCA), can also help designers achieve the credits required for building certification within LEED® and other green building rating programs.
The Importance of the Production Phase in Vehicle Life Cycle GHG Emissions
A study showing the material production phase accounts for a significant portion of overall vehicle life cycle emissions; therefore, it must be considered as part of any overall regulatory program to reduce vehicle emissions.
