Tata Steel has commissioned its new 0.5 MnTPA Steel Recycling Plant at Rohtak, Haryana. The plant has been set up in collaboration with Aarti Green Tech Ltd., as a ‘Build, Own, Operate’ (BOO) partner. The scrap would be procured from various market segments such as end-of-life vehicles, obsolete households, construction & demolition, industrial etc., through an app ‘FerroHaat’, and the the material would then be processed through mechanised equipment and the high-quality processed scrap would be supplied for downstream steel making, he company said.
Simultaneously, Tata Steel has also launched two new brands - Tata FerroBaled and Tata FerroShred for the baled and shredded ferrous scrap produced in its new facility. These products are “high quality processed scrap” and promise to provide the much-needed raw material fillip to Indian steel industry by making available quality processed ferrous scrap and reducing the dependency on imports, as per the statement. Both the brands promise high cleanliness, low contamination, high bulk density, lower tramp elements and no radioactivity, besides Test Certificates, another first for the scrap industry.
Steel Scrap is a valuable resource and an important future raw material for steel making, said Yogesh Bedi, Chief Steel Recycling Business, Tata Steel. “The Brand names will give a distinct identity to the processed scrap and ensure a standardised quality product for the customer and simultaneously raise the bar of the scrap industry,” he noted.
