SRI-logo-250More than one billion tonnes of steel have been recycled by the North American steel industry since 1988 according to the Steel Recycling Institute (SRI), a business unit of AISI. SRI marks its 25th anniversary this year with this milestone achievement and the release of the 2012 steel recycling rates.

Established in 1988 as the Steel Can Recycling Institute, SRI was commissioned by the North American Steel Industry to develop an infrastructure for the recycling of steel cans and serve as a primary information and technical resource. By 1993, SRI’s focus had expanded beyond just steel cans to promoting and sustaining the recycling of all steel products. Today, these efforts continue along with credibly documenting the superior environmental performance of steel through rigorous life cycle studies.

The steel industry’s impressive recycling accomplishments are also at the core of other environmental advances by the North American steel industry. Since 1990, the steel industry has improved its energy efficiency per ton by 27 percent and has decreased its CO2 emissions per ton by 33 percent—making North American steel an environmentally preferred material which aids its customers in improving the environmental performance of their products. In April, SRI also announced the launch of ROSCOE’s Recycle Room, an interactive web experience aimed at children ages 8-13 with an emphasis on educating them on the importance of recycling all materials, including steel.
