We produce steel through a sustainable process that reduces the environmental impact from mineral extraction.
Steel collection for recycling
It all begins with the collection of disused ferrous material that we concentrate in our 21 Recycling Centers.
We process, clean and transport it to our steel mills.
We transform 98% of residues into sub-products that are used in other industries, such as:
We turn it into liquid in our Smelting Furnaces.
Once it is melted, it passes to the Ladle Furnaces where we ensure the best quality of the steel.
We mold it in a bar shape (billet) and we cool it.
The billet is a bar-shaped semi-finished steel product, which is used as raw material for the rolling process through which long steel products are obtained, such as rebars, wire rods, bars & beams, among others.1
Wire Rolling and Drawing
Our wire rods, rebars and bars & beams originate from the billet.1
Structural bars & beams4
Rebar, bars 6 beams, wire rods and wire products are supplied to the 7 markets of the economy where we are present.
At the same time, the industrial wire rod is raw material for the wire drawing process to produce wire.
The wire rod is converted into different types of wires for countless uses.
Collection – The cycle starts again
When the products complete their life cycle.
WE START OVER AGAIN
We reuse them and convert them in new DEACERO products, over and over again.
