India to receive first car-shredder in 2018

According to EUWID Recycling, India will install the country’s first car-shredder until November 2018. While the location for the new car-shredder, with an intake capacity of 40 tph, has not yet been found, the technical equipment for the car-shredding facility has been ordered already. The head of the project is the state-owned trade company MSTC. At the moment, five different locations are being discussed. According to MSTC, around 100 new car-shredding facilities with an intake capacity of 100,000 tpy would be needed in India per year. The recycling rate for scrap steel lies at 20-25% in India. The potential for development in this business sector is currently really high, accordingly.
