Steel Scrap Recycling Policy to Provide Framework for Scrapping Centres

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): The Union Steel Minister Dharmendra Pradhan announced that the Indian government has notified a new Steel Scrap Recycling Policy (SSRP). The policy aims to provide necessary framework for establishment of metal scrapping facilities in the country.

The SSRP provides standard guidelines for collection, dismantling and shredding of metal scrap in an organized, safe and environmentally sound way. It outlines guidelines for setting up and operating dismantling and scrap processing centres. Further, it describes the obligations of aggregators and manufacturers. As per the policy, government will not be responsible for setting up scrap centres. Rather, it will provide a framework for their establishment.

It will be determined, based on the prevailing market conditions, he said. Other ministries- Ministry of Road Transport and Highways and Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change will also play a key role in sanctioning of scrap centres, Pradhan added.
