by David Fleschen
As part of its commitment to a sustainable tomorrow, Tata Steel has commissioned its new 0.5 MnTPA Steel Recycling Plant at Rohtak, Haryana. The plant has been set up in collaboration with M/s Aarti Green Tech Ltd., as a ‘Build, Own, Operate’ (BOO) partner. It is the first such facility in India, equipped with modern & mechanised equipment such as Shredder, Baler, Material Handler etc. 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®. The scrap would then be processed through mechanised equipment and the high-quality processed scrap would be supplied for downstream steel making. Steel produced through the recycled route entails lower carbon emissions, resource consumption & energy utilisation.
Simultaneously, Tata Steel has also launched two new brands - Tata FerroBaled® and Tata FerroShred® for the baled & shredded ferrous scrap produced in its new facility. These products are high quality processed scrap & they 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.
Both Tata FerroBaled® & Tata FerroShred® promise high cleanliness, low contamination, high bulk density, lower tramp elements & no radioactivity. The products would be accompanied with Test Certificates, another first for the scrap industry, along with value propositions like higher yield, better productivity, lower conversion costs, lower transportation & handling costs and overall a better quality.
Yogesh Bedi, Chief Steel Recycling Business, Tata Steel, said: “Steel can be recycled again & again without losing its properties. From that perspective Steel Scrap is a valuable resource and an important future Raw Material for steel making. Recycling scrap ensures the closure of the Circular Economy loop. 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.”
