In a seminar organized on Stainless Steel for Sustainable Transit Building Solutions, Indian Stainless Steel Development Association (ISSDA), which is the apex body of the stainless steel industry in India, advocated the adoption of global infrastructural standards by using stainless steel for transit hubs.
ISSDA highlighted that stainless steel usage has been the benchmark in several sustainable infrastructural projects worldwide and persuaded all stakeholders to take a cue from these international transit hubs. As the front runner in sensitizing stakeholders to the benefits of using sustainable stainless steel-based solutions across sectors, ISSDA brought stakeholders together through this seminar and discussed various aspects of stainless steel applications for long-lasting and maintenance-free public infrastructure.
Commenting on the occasion, President, ISSDA, Mr K K Pahuja said, “Its exceptional characteristics make stainless steel the best fit for constructing transit hubs in India. Its durability, minimal maintenance and sustainability make it stand out among other materials in such areas of high footfalls. With the booming pace of infrastructural development, incorporation of stainless steel is a must for efficient, safe and durable transit infrastructure. A shift from old structural buildings to reliable and sustainable stainless steel infrastructure is the need of the hour.” Major players like Jindal Stainless Group and Salem (SAIL) are expected to play a crucial role in mobilizing stainless steel usage.
