  • Customized Length & SM520 Emphasize Resources Optimization Based on Circular Economy

At present, construction trends began to shift towards environmental friendliness. At the same time, many industries have turned their attention to the idea of ​​driving their businesses based on circular economy, which focuses on recycling raw materials to reduce unnecessary exploitation of natural resources. Steel is one of the materials that are green to the planet as it is 100% recyclable. It’s therefore more cost-effective, offering maximum benefits while sustainably protecting the environment

Eco-friendly construction with steel structure

Apart from reflecting the circular economic concept, or the 3R principle (namely Reduce, Reuse and Recycle), for almost 100%, steel is also measurable using the “Material Circularity Indicator (MCI)”. MCI means that all raw materials used must consist of recyclable components or materials, and can be fully recycled with no waste left throughout the entire production process. Also, when the product expires, it must be reusable with Zero Waste left. Steel products truly meet the circular economic concept where all resources are used efficiently. It also has a product cycle that is longer than concrete structures while also playing part in solving global warming issues thanks to 24% less amount of CO2 emitted during the production process, transportation, and construction, compared to concrete structures.

CUSTOMIZED LENGTH results in no steel waste

H-BEAM customization gives sizes you need. You can just simply make an order of extra-long steels with SYS, which is a way to reduce amounts of waste at the construction site as SYS can produce and customize length based on your actual usage. Moreover, with this customized length, you can save costs spent on cutting the material and save time for the disposal of unwanted parts. All of these combined can ultimately make your project cost-effective and best allocate the resources.

SM520 helps reduce amounts of steel used throughout

Furthermore, SM520 steel (High Strength Steel) features a higher strength as its properties have been developed, thus being able to withstand higher tensile stresses. That means you can reduce the size of the construction you’re working on, cutting the overall weight by up to 20%. This ensures that the project will save more costs due to reduced sizes of the foundation and piles, less workers required, reduced installation time and transportation trips. Choosing SM520 steel is hence another option to enhance the cost-effectiveness of the project dimensionally and to mitigate the problem of pollution which has been released to the environment.
