It’s Earth Day today, and here is one fact that struck me, courtesy of the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI):
More steel is recycled annually than paper, plastic, aluminum and glass combined.
I thought that was pretty remarkable. Approximately 90% of metal roofs and insulated metal panels are made out of steel, much of which is recycled content. That’s just one of the many green benefits found in metal roofs and walls.
