Tata Steel opens recycling plant
  • Closing the loop by recycling steel

By Business India Editorial

Tata Steel, a global steel manufacturer, has commissioned a 0.5 million tonnes per annum steel recycling plant at Rohtak, Haryana, as part of its commitment to a sustainable tomorrow.

Set up in collaboration with Aarti Green Tech Ltd., as a ‘Build, Own, Operate’ (BOO) partner, the plant is the first such facility in country, with modern and mechanised equipment such as shredder, baler, material handler etc.

Steel produced through the recycled route entails lower carbon emissions, resource consumption and energy utilisation. A note from the company said that the scrap would be procured from various market segments such as end-of-life vehicles, obsolete households, construction and 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.

Tata Steel has also launched two 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 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 and 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.”

Tata Steel group has an annual crude steel capacity of 34 million tonnes per annum. One of the world’s most geographically diversified steel producers, with operations and commercial presence across the world, the group recorded a consolidated turnover of $21.06 billion in the financial year ending on March 31, 2021.
