The NFL announced Tuesday it is making steel reinforcement a new building material in the league’s 2018 draft class.
The company is now working with the Detroit Lions to create the steel reinforcing concrete used in the first three NFL stadiums to be built in Detroit and Nashville.
The new steel reinforcement concrete is made of recycled and recycled-derived materials, such as natural fibers and recycled aluminum, the NFL said in a release.
The company is using an advanced process that combines a process called thermoplastic manufacturing with a process known as high-temperature carbonation that has a more favorable structure than conventional reinforcement.
The result is a more durable and cost-effective material that can be used in concrete buildings as well as buildings that have a steel frame.
Steel reinforcement concrete can also be used as a replacement for steel beams that were designed to be replaced by newer structures.
The process is similar to the one used in steel reinforcement, the steel-tipped galvanized pipe.
The steel reinforcing material, which is made from recycled aluminum and recycled materials, is expected to be used on a variety of buildings and in concrete structures in the NFL and other professional sports.
The league said it will also partner with the University of Michigan to develop a new material that could replace steel reinforcing in its stadium and stadium-level projects.
The NFL said it has not yet made a final decision on the material but is committed to using the most environmentally-friendly materials possible.
The first three stadiums will be constructed at the former home of the Detroit Pistons and Nashville Predators, the two former NFL teams that are now known as the Tennessee Titans.
The third stadium will be built at the site of the former Tennessee Titans stadium.
The Titans are scheduled to open their new stadium at the end of this season.
The team is not expected to move into the new stadium until 2020.
