"Sahajwalla, director at the Centre for Sustainable Materials Research and Technology at The University of New South Wales, is helping the materials industries combat environmental challenges with a technology that reduces carbon emissions and uses recycled rubber tyres that would otherwise go to landfills in electric arc furnace (EAF) steelmaking."

Basically, she researched and developed a technique that uses plastics as the source for carbon in the making of steel. The tech has now been put to use using discarded tires, which happen to be made of a synthetic rubber that is rich in carbon.

Its also cheaper than coal and the steel produced is of a higher quality.
