  • Copper Scrap: Key Developments in the Market
    Originally recorded on Monday, November 23
    Available on demand

    • China has started trading copper scrap as recyclable copper materials. How has the industry coped with such drastic changes so far? 
    • Covid 19 led disruptions led to disruption in copper scrap supply this year; are we expecting it to continue next year? Is the high-volume-low-margin model still relevant for the recycling industry? 
    • More Chinese companies are now exempted from paying tariffs in the Sino-US trade war; is it still affecting scrap trade flow between the two powers?
    • Europe is mulling reduction of ‘waste’ exports to encourage local recycling and it covers scrap metal. What could we expect from the new policy? 
    • Southeast Asian copper scrap dismantling and smelting capacity rose notably in the past two years, so has the increased scrutiny from locals against scrap imports. Will the trend continue?
