we can help you build greener

Nucor has played a major role in the documented reduction of carbon equivalent emissions. Our Electric Arc Furnace technology uses post-consumer scrap steel material as the major feedstock, which in turn produces 67% less carbon equivalent emissions than those produced by conventional steel making technology.

Moreover, Nucor has steel and steel products manufacturing facilities throughout North America—often within 500 miles of your project site.
