STEEL, METALS AND MINING


Indian Industry Update ( 18th November 2011 )

Steel Demamnd growth down to 2.8% in H1: P K Mishr
Growth in domestic steel demand dipped to 2.8 per cent in the first half this fiscal from 8.8 per cent in the first four years of the 11th Five-Year Plan, says Steel Secretary P K Mishra, who has opined that it will be a challenge to meet 12th Plan production targets. Mishra also said the country needs some policy corrections to ensure that promised private sector investments in the sector become a reality.

"The Indian steel industry is facing challenging times. The growth rate in steel demand, after registering an annual growth rate of 8.8 per cent in the first four years of the 11th Plan, has fallen to 2.8 per cent in the first six months of this current year," Mishra said. He said the first four years of the 11th Plan witnessed a slowdown in domestic steel supplies.

Growth in finished steel production during this period was low at 5.8 per cent, especially in comparison to growth in steel demand.

"It is felt that meeting domestic demand, which is likely to grow at the rate of 10.3 per cent per annum in the 12th Plan, will be a highly challenging task. It is estimated that the country will require a crude steel capacity of 140 million tonnes by 2016-17 to meet domestic steel demand," Mishra explained.

"It is clear that in a business-as-usual scenario, domestic supply of steel will significantly fall short of domestic demand," he added.

He said while there are a large number of domestic and international private investors keen to invest in the Indian steel sector, a proactive government role will be required to convert these prospects into concrete initiatives.

"There is an urgent need to make necessary policy corrections or adjustments to increase domestic production of crude steel to avoid over-dependence on steel imports," he added.

To ensure time-bound implementation of greenfield capacities and facilitate rapid growth of the domestic steel industry, the Steel Ministry is drafting a new National Steel Policy and the first draft is likely to be ready for public discussion in the next few weeks, he said.

The output of the Indian steel industry is expected to reach 113 million tonnes by the end of the 12th Five-Year Plan. Mishra said the Indian steel Industry is losing competitiveness in some traditional areas of strength and must take up R&D on a war-footing. For this, the ministry has brought out a roadmap on R&D and technology, he said.

"You may also be aware that investment in R&D by Indian steel companies is as low as -0.15 per cent to 0.25 per cent of turnover, as compared to 1 to 2 per cent in known steel companies across the globe," Mishra said. He also opined there is a need to discourage the export of iron ore from the country through appropriate measures.

UPDATE – HARMONIZED VOLUNTARY ARRANGEMENTS FOR BALLAST WATER MANAGEMENT IN THE MEDITERRANEAN REGION


Areas in the Mediterranean Sea meeting the requirements set out in Regulation B-4.1.2 of the
Ballast Water Management Convention
(at least 50 nautical miles from the nearest land in waters of at least 200 meters depth)


The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has published a Circular informing that the Mediterranean Sea region voluntary implements the ballast water regulations from January 1st, 2012.


THE MEDITERRANEAN REGION ADOPTS BWM CONVENTION


The Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Centre for the Mediterranean Sea (REMPEC) has adopted under
voluntary basis the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments
(please refer to Article 13/Paragraph 3 of the Convention) from January 1st, 2012.
More specifically, as per IMO BWM.2/Circ.35 all ships before entering or after leaving the Mediterranean Sea area
shall undertake ballast water exchange. The exchange of ballast water shall be carried out according to the
standards outlined in regulation D-1 of the Convention and shall be at least 200 nautical miles from the nearest
land and in water and in waters at least 200 meters in depth (please refer to Regulation B-4.1.1 of the Convention).
As per Regulation B-4.1.2 of the Convention in cases where this is not possible, either due to deviating the ship
from its intended voyage or relaying the ship, or for safety reasons, the exchange should be undertaken before the
ship is entering or after leaving the Mediterranean Sea area, as applicable, as far from the nearest land as possible
and in all cases in waters at least 50 nautical miles from the nearest land and in waters of at least 200 meters

COAL

India going on non green path for coal mining

Environment is holding up growth and economic development. This is the common refrain in circles that matter. So, when the Group of Ministers tasked to resolve the issue of coal mining in forests asked for a report on what needed to be done, it was told that the best would be to dismantle green conditions, almost completely, so that development could be pursued.

The BK Chaturvedi Committee recommends all coal mining projects be given automatic clearance, with exceptions only for projects in dense areas. There is no definition of dense or an understanding of the importance of protecting forests for water or livelihood security.

Then, the committee wants all provisions that seek to protect rights of local people or the environment to be relaxed. It recommends that the gram sabha required to give consent to the project be held without a quorum, in other words, democracy be sidelined. People should not be heard.

Similarly, public hearings should be done away with when it comes to projects for expansion of the current mine. It also recommends that even in areas identified as critically polluted, new projects be allowed without check. It has no time to waste on such minor considerations as the health of people who live in these regions. The horrendous cumulative impacts of these massive projects must be ignored, because we are a nation in a hurry.

URGENT REPORTS ON INCIDENTS INVOLVING HARMFUL SUBSTANCES,
INCLUDING OIL FROM SHIPS TO COASTAL STATES
1 The following information is provided to enable compliance with Regulation 37 of
MARPOL Annex I which, inter alia, requires that shipboard pollution emergency plans for oil
(SOPEP) shall contain a list of authorities or persons to be contacted in the event of a pollution
incident involving such substances. Requirements for oil pollution emergency plans and relevant
oil pollution reporting procedures are contained in Articles 3 and 4 of the 1990 OPRC Convention.
2 This information is also provided to enable compliance with Regulation 17 of MARPOL
Annex II which, inter alia, requires that the shipboard marine pollution emergency plans for oil
and/or noxious liquid substances (SMPEP) shall contain a list of authorities or persons to be
contacted in the event of a pollution incident involving such substances. In this context,
requirements for emergency plans and reporting for hazardous and noxious substances are also
contained in Article 3 of the 2000 OPRC-HNS Protocol.
3 Resolution MEPC.54(32), as amended by resolution MEPC.86(44), on the SOPEP
Guidelines and resolution MEPC.85(44), as amended by resolution MEPC.137(53), on the
SMPEP Guidelines adopted by the IMO require that these shipboard pollution emergency plans
should include, as an appendix, the list of agencies or officials of administrations responsible for
receiving and processing reports as developed and up-dated by the Organization in compliance
with Article 8 (Reports on incidents involving harmful substances) and Protocol I (Provisions
concerning Reports on Incidents Involving Harmful Substances) of the MARPOL Convention.
Under Article 8 of Convention, each Party to the Convention shall notify the Organization with
complete details of authorities responsible for receiving and processing reports on incidents for
circulation to other Parties and Member States of the Organization. Attention is also drawn to
both Guidelines which stipulate that "in the absence of a listed focal point, or should any undue
delay be experienced in contacting the responsible authority by direct means, the master should
be advised to contact the nearest coastal radio station, designated ship movement reporting
station or rescue co-ordination centre (RCC) by the quickest available means".
4 The "List of national operational contact points responsible for the receipt, transmission
and processing of urgent reports on incidents involving harmful substances, including oil from
ships to coastal States" contained in the circular is updated at the end of each calendar year.
This list is an update of that contained in MSC-MEPC.6/Circ.6 dated 31 December 2009, as
amended.
