Listen: China’s industrial policies shift global aluminum scrap trade, push prices down

Aluminum trade had a big year in 2018, and while US tariffs got a lot of media attention, China also took action that has impacted nonferrous scrap trade and prices worldwide. Scrap dealers and secondary aluminum smelters in the US, Mexico and Asia have had to grapple with these changes, and will continue to do so in 2019.

Join S&P Global Platts metals editors Mayumi Watanabe, senior news editor in Tokyo; Henrique Ribeiro, Latin American editor in Sao Paolo; and Rebecca Grenham, senior pricing specialist in Washington, to learn more about how China's policies impacted secondary aluminum trade and prices in 2018.
