Global scrap scene gathers in India

Scrap recyclers and traders from all over the world meet in Delhi this weekend for the 7th International Material Recycling Conference, organised by the Metal Recycling Association of India (MRAI).

A total of 1500 delegates are expected to join the 3-day event, which takes place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Gurugram, a financial and technology hub southwest of the Indian capital.

Major challenges

India’s recycling sector is moving forward rapidly. At the same time, the sector continues to be handicapped by import duties, over-regulation and a poor collection and processing infrastructure. But help is on the way with the National Recycling Policy. Designed jointly with the wider recycling industry, the National Recycling Policy is intended to further boost the future of recycling in this country of 1.2 billion people.

Millions of extra jobs

The action plan is to create millions of extra jobs, save the environment and guarantee economic benefits for the entire industry.
