Potential for circular practices in construction steel

According to a recent report from the United Nations Environment Program, emissions from the manufacture of building materials make up about 11 percent of total global emissions, with steel being a primary contributor to embodied carbon. Since the supply of reuse construction steel remains low, four graduate students from Yale University have developed a potential business model for one of the world’s largest steel producers to help steelmakers profit from reuse strategies.
