Environment & Safety

At Big River Steel, caring for the environment while caring for our people is simply how business is done. That being said, there is nothing simple about our commitment to the world in which we work and to the safety of our team.

Big River Steel Environment & Safety

Big River Steel built 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.
