More About Cleveland-Cliffs’ Commitment To Reduce GHGs

Steel is the most recycled material in the world*.

All steel contains recycled content and is 100 percent recyclable at end of life. These characteristics of steel make it an ideal material for the circular economy

Our innovative products produce clean steel. 

Advancements in using direct reduced iron (DRI) and hot briquetted iron (HBI) in place of pig iron are increasing productivity and reducing GHG emissions in steelmaking.
