Big River Steel is building a Flex Mill™ that is as environmentally resourceful as it is technologically advanced. The equipment that is pushing the boundaries of steel is also setting new standards in terms of energy efficiency. For instance, the hydraulic power roof system in the electric arc furnace (EAF) reduces the amount of heat escaping, thus reducing our energy consumption.
Our advanced equipment also supports our commitment to run our mill with the health and safety practices and work environments needed to enable Big River team members to work injury-free. Many of the most intensive processes in making steel have been automated thanks to technological advancements.
