Green fabrication

Downstream steel processing may be a key factor in determining whether a structural steel or other building system has a low overall carbon impact. A US study of the fabrication sector found that the average steel fabrication process can contribute up to 20 percent to the structural steel package portion of the overall steel building frame impact.

The ASI has a group of leading fabricators in the buildings area who have united under the ASI’s Environmental Sustainability Charter (ESC). (PDF) (19 Kb)

The ASI Charter members have agreed to measure and control the numbers on:

  • Steel use versus steel scrapped
  • Water use
  • Power use
  • Waste disposal
  • Fuel use
  • Consumables
  • Gas consumption
  • Chemicals use
