The Steel Drum Life Cycle
Steel is the most recycled material on the planet. With a recycling rate of 88 percent, steel is recycled more than all other materials combined, according to the American Iron & Steel Institute. Steel can be continuously recycled with no loss of performance – a vital attribute for keeping products safe and secure as they move through the supply chain.
Today, two out of every three tons of new steel are produced from recycled steel and used to build millions of consumer goods, including automobiles, appliances – and even steel drums. Its endless recyclability, and capacity to endure, makes steel the very definition of sustainability.
