Steel is an important material indispensable to modern society, used in automobiles, roads, bridges, ships, buildings, towers and more, and supports our lives in a myriad of ways. Steel is a key industry providing various steel products for a broad range of industrial fields crucial to people’s lives.

Once it has served its purpose, steel is sorted and recovered as scrap, to be melted in an electric arc furnace (EAF) for recycling and sent back to society. Of the 90 million tons of steel produced annually in Japan, roughly 30% is recycled from scrap. We, Osaka Steel, are an EAF steelmaker, a specialist in this method of steel recycling.
