Bayou Steel Group: Devoted to Our Sustainable Future
Our values are the bedrock of our business. A people-centered approach to steelmaking, built on experience, service and partnership.
Our mills use the scrap-based Electric Arc Furnace steelmaking production process. This technology is the cleanest and most energy-efficient process available, reducing the dependency on iron ore, coal, and limestone. By using recycled scrap as our raw material, we reduce the need for mining our natural resources, and decrease CO2 emissions significantly.
We distribute products throughout the US, Canada and Mexico. Our facilities enable us to ship by barge, rail and from all mill and depot locations.

Environmental 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.
