Draft steel scrap policy released

The Ministry of Steel has released a draft policy aimed at increasing self-sufficiency and curtailing dependency on imports. To achieve this, high-quality ferrous scrap should be produced locally. As reported on Recycling Today, this entails formal and scientific collection, dismantling and processing activities for end-of-life products, which are the sources of recyclable scrap. The draft is part of the National Steel Policy, which was initiated in 2017, and aims at establishing a globally competitive steel industry in India by 2030.
