Union Steel Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia said on Saturday that his ministry is promoting “recycled” steel, meaning recycled. Under this, emphasis will be placed on the use of 50 percent recycled steel as raw material by primary steel producers. He said this would help achieve the government’s goal of creating a resource-efficient economy. Currently, the level of use of recycled steel in the primary steel industry is around 15 percent.

While this industry contributes 22.5 percent of the total national production of steel. The minister said this while he was addressing an international conference on recycling materials here. The three-day conference was organized by the ‘Materials Recycling Association of India’. More than 2,000 delegates from 38 countries participated in it. Scindia said that in the coming times, the industry will have to promote recycling and minimize the exploitation of natural resources.

He said the government has pledged to cut carbon dioxide emissions in the steel sector by 5 percent by 2030, and the use of recycled steel is very important in that direction. Currently, the use of scrap in primary steel production is only 15 percent, he said. We will push to increase this to 25 percent over the next five years, with a target of 50 percent by 2047.
