Excellence Policy

Bayou Steel Group facilities are committed to minimizing our impact on and protecting the environments in which we operate.

Steel is the most widely used metal and most recycled material on earth. Steel can be recycled over and over without loss of strength. Each year, more steel is recycled than paper, plastic, aluminum and glass combined. The process of utilizing scrap metal to produce steel plays a significant role in energy conservation in numerous ways including less emissions of CO2, less waste deposited into landfills, and conservation of water. Through recycling, the steel industry saves the energy equivalent to power 20 million homes for one year.

Bayou Steel Group is committed to operating in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. It is the policy of Bayou Steel Group to effectively perform all activities in order to meet environmental objectives.

  • Objective 1
