The Steel Tube Institute was formed in 1930 when a group of manufacturers joined forces to promote and market steel tubing. Their goal was to mount a cooperative effort that would improve manufacturing techniques and inform customers about their products’ utility and versatility.
Steel Tube Institute Announces Development Of Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) For HSS
On behalf of our Hollow Structural Sections (HSS) producing companies, STI has developed an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for standard (non-fabricated) HSS. This EPD can be used to calculate credits within the LEED v4 rating system and to meet a growing number of procurement requirements for governments and industry. Steel remains the world’s most recycled material and is often a material-of-choice for designers who are seeking to achieve LEED or other certifications.
