One way the U.S. is helping the global economy is by recycling the used steel and producing new steel for exportation.

In the last 25 years, over one billion tons of old steel scraps have been recycled into steel-making furnaces to produce recycled new steel products. This is just one way the U.S. steel industry is compliant with OSHA and other safety and health organizations.
