Tata Steel commissions new steel recycling plant to process scrap for downstream steel making
Tata Steel has commissioned a new 0.5 MnTPA steel recycling plant in Rohtak, Haryana. The plant has been set up in collaboration with M/s Aarti Green Tech as a ‘Build, Own, Operate' (BOO) partner. According to the company, it is the first such facility in India, equipped with modern and mechanized equipment such as shredders, balers, material handlers and more.
The scrap will be procured from various market segments such as end-of-life vehicles, construction & demolition waste and industrial waste. The scrap will then be processed and supplied for downstream steel making. Steel produced through the recycled route entails lower carbon emissions, resource consumption and energy utilization.
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 will provide raw material to the Indian steel industry by making quality processed ferrous scrap available and reducing the dependency on imports.
