New steel recycling center in Tampa
OneSteel Recycling has opened a new steel scrap processing facility at Port Sutton in the Port of Tampa.
OneSteel, formerly Smorgon Steel, has expanded its footprint by 9.4 acres and has invested $25 million in a new shredder, expected to process about 150,000 tons of scrap in its first year.
“This facility is a vital piece of waste processing infrastructure, helping to significantly reduce the energy, resources and associated greenhouse gases as compared to making steel from iron ore,” said Lloyd Green, engineering and project manager for OneSteel.
OneSteel is an Australian-based mining, ore processing and steel manufacturing company specializing in long-steel products for the construction, housing and agricultural industries.
About 30 jobs will be created in Tampa, credited to the new expansion, Green said.
