We’re committed to sustainable steel



98% of the steel we produce is made from recycled scrap metals.



Gerdau reuses 97% of the water used in the steelmaking process.



Gerdau reuses 73% of its co-products, which are by-products of our manufacturing process, and we donate the remainder to help improve roads in areas near our operations.



Gerdau mills have invested in modern dust removal systems that capture particles generated in the steel production process. This filtered material is a co-product used by other industries.
