India is likely to leave Japan behind and become the world’s second largest steel producer by December this year, Indian Institute of Metals (IIM) Delhi Chapter Chairman, K L Mehrotra said in a statement. However, what needs to be deliberated is will it be the greenfield or brownfield projects that will help India achieve the ambitious 300 million tonnes target, added Malhotra, who has also served as chairman and managing director of state-run manganese miner, MOIL. IIM is organizing the 11th edition of Minerals, Metals, Metallurgy and Materials International Exhibition and Conference (MMMM 2016) in New Delhi next week.
