Ford has replaced steel with aluminum in the body of the top-selling F-150, and now General Motors is looking to follow suit by putting more of the lighter and costlier metal in its own pickups.
Steelmakers are designing new lightweight car parts so that car makers won't come up with designs that involve aluminum.
A blast furnace has gone down at ArcelorMittal Indiana Harbor, the largest steelmaking complex in North America.
ArcelorMittal and U.S. Steel have been working on streamlining operations after a prolonged economic slump has kept them from being profitable, and the Pittsburgh-based steelmaker plans to review labor costs at all its facilities.
The steel industry continues to struggle despite rising orders from automakers, who have added third shifts and new employees to keep pace with their turbocharged sales.
