Tata Steel commissions 0.5MTPA steel recycling plant in Rohtak

Indian steelmaking company Tata Steel said that it has commissioned its first steel recycling plant in Rohtak, Haryana, which has a capacity of 0.5MTPA.

According to the Tata Group company, the steel recycling factory has been established in partnership with Aarti Green Tech as a ‘build, own, operate’ (BOO) partner.

Tata Steel claimed that it is the first of its kind facility in India to be equipped with modern and mechanized equipment like shredder, baler, and material handler among others.

The steelmaking company will procure scrap from multiple market segments like end-of-life vehicles, construction and demolition, obsolete households, industrial, and others through its FerroHaat ferrous steel scrap selling app.

After procuring the scrap, it will be processed at the steel recycling plant in Rohtak by using mechanized equipment and the processed scrap will be supplied for downstream steel making.

Steel produced via the recycled route involves lower carbon emissions, resource consumption, and energy utilization, said Tata Steel.

Tata Steel has also announced the launch of a couple of new brands in Tata FerroBaled and Tata FerroShred for the baled and shredded ferrous scrap produced in the new steel recycling plant in Rohtak.

The company said that the products are high quality processed scrap and can potentially give the much-needed raw material fillip to the Indian steel industry by making quality processed ferrous scrap available, thereby cutting down the dependency on imports.

Tata FerroBaled and Tata FerroShred both promise high cleanliness, high bulk density, low contamination, lower tramp elements, and no radioactivity, said Tata Steel.

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.”
