You won't get 100 percent unrecycled new steel for the framework of your new building. That's because for every three tons of produced steel, two tons are made from recycled steel. Here in North America, recycled steel has always been a part of the steel-making process, which is why there's such a market for steel scrap metal like you'll find in cars, appliances, and construction materials. In fact, according to the Steel Recycling Institute, up to 80 million tons of used steel scrap is recycled into new steel products every year.
