Steel Storage Tanks: Durable and Environmentally Friendly

Steel storage tanks have been around for many years, but make no mistake, the steel storage tanks of today are as relevant as ever. Steel might not be the first material that comes to mind when one thinks of environmental design, but in fact steel is 100% recyclable. After a steel tank’s life comes to an end it can be fully recycled to provide material for new steel tanks or other steel products. The latest recycling processes reduce industrial emissions by over 70% to air and water, and reduce the amount of energy needed to produce new steel by 30%. Now that’s a sustainable industrial material.

In addition to its sustainability, steel is also popular for its versatility. The durable, corrosion resistant nature of steel allows it to be used for a wide range of industrial applications. Tanks Direct’s main manufacturer for steel storage tanks, Highland Tanks, supplies tanks for petroleum and chemical storage, wastewater treatment, grease removal, and water storage and pressure vessels. Their tanks use steel held to rigid ASTM specifications, which ensures strength, durability, and corrosion resistance.
