Steel Summit 2013

·        Union Minister of Steel Beni Prasad Verma today urged steel manufacturers to adopt greener technologies for optimum use of raw materials. Inaugurating the CII Steel Summit 2013, the Minister stressed on modern pelletisation techniques to effectively utilize iron ore fines.
Towards this end the Steel Ministry had prepared a roadmap to promote R&D by providing incentives to steel makers to invest in research. To obtain a competitive edge, Mr Verma also suggested that better logistics could help minimize costs. “The transportation of raw material through slurry pipeline could be a good solution,” he said.

·         Mr C S Verma, Chairman, CII National Committee on Steel and Chairman, SAIL, said that if the 2025 target of 300 million tones capacity is to be achieved, several steps need to be taken. With regard to input challenges, he said largescale mechanization of mines and improved capacity utilization of coal washeries was a must. Another huge challenge was availability of land, as about 1 lakh acres would be required.

·         The constraint of raw materials, especially iron ore, was also highlighted by Mr A P Choudhary, CMD Rashtriya ispat Nigaam Ltd. He urged the government to allow captive mines or else facilitate low priced iron ore to steel makers.

·         Earlier, welcoming the participants, Mr Chandrajit Banerjee, CII Director General, expressed hope that the proposed new National Steel Policy would address several concerns of the industry as represented by CII in various for a. These include the need for inter-ministerial groups, allaying land acquisition concerns, R&D and the human resource challenge of skills shortage.

·         Further, projects worth over Rs 400 thousand crore were delayed, some for more than year, he added. With cost of land acquisition likely to increase 3-3.5 times, industrial projects may be rendered unviable. Delays are also on account of the high levels of consent laid out in the bill and the retrospective applicability of the bill.

·         The Twelfth Five Year Plan envisages Rs 1 trillion investment in infrastructure which translates into steel demand of $15 billion. The CII Summit is thus being held at a crucial juncture and the deliberations will seek to inform policymakers and industry alike of the opportunities, challenges and solutions.
