 Steel minister Chaudhary Birender Singh has asked steel PSU, MECON, to utilise its experience and expertise in metallurgical engineering to enhance capacity utilisation and product improvement.

 
Singh said MECON can play a leading role in setting up of coal washeries and pellet plants. He said MECON should try to enhance steel consumption by working on steel-intensive structures and exhibiting the advantages of using steel. 
 
“With envisaged 300 million tonne capacity of steel production by 2030, increasing steel exports is very crucial and MECON should contribute to this through engineering and market development. In India, new avenues for steel use like crash barriers, railway sleepers, food grain silos, electric poles and underpass structures must be explored,” he said.
 
The enterprise must update itself with latest technologies and play a pro-active role in solving technological challenges and facilitate optimal use of raw materials and import substitution, Singh suggested.
