ABSTRACT
The article reports that metal industry firm Gerdau Ameristeel Corp. has acquired a license to use the patented Stebbing Engineering Scrap Tire Process in its minimills.

The carbon and hydrogen in the tires also serve as a source of energy, and the tires' steel belts are added to the scrap-steel mix.
