Hello everyone. I noticed this article where for a decommissioned off shore oil rig is being torn down no the steel and other materials are being salvaged. It is impressive the commitment behind this kind of effort. I believe the U.S. has at times focused on repurposing steel (really good steel) especially during WW2 when old steel was collected and used for the war effort. Just something which effects manufacturing and through steel production being less as this steel is reused. I thought interesting connections can be made US and Europe and given current trends it can be enlightening. They are committed to doing this with determination all disagreements aside of course. It is interesting to hear views from our European members and American (USA) members. Best regards.
