Nucor Steel Louisiana Field Trip
Optional field trip to
Nucor Steel Louisiana LLC
Friday 12 September 2014
Nucor Steel Louisiana LLC is a subsidiary of Nucor Corporation , the largest steel and steel products manufacturer and the largest recycler in the United States. Nucor Steel Louisiana LLC produces direct-reduced iron, or DRI, which is a nearly pure form of iron that is melted in Nucors electric arc furnaces along with scrap in order to make new steel.
Nucor Steel Louisiana LLC began production at the end of the 4th Quarter of 2013, marking the return of a technology that had not operated in the U.S. since 2009. With an annual capacity of 2.5 million metric tons, the $750 million facility is the largest DRI plant in the world. With the Louisiana DRI facility now operational, Nucor is two-thirds of the way to its goal of producing 6 to 7 million tons of high quality scrap substitutes. By producing more of its own DRI, Nucor gains tremendous flexibility in using the lowest cost iron units in steelmaking.
