SHANGHAI, Sep 20 (SMM) – Some 164,600 mt of copper scrap, across more than 40 companies, received the green light in the 20th and latest batch of approvals for restricted solid scrap imports, according to the release earlier this week by the solid waste management centre of China's Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE).

The latest batch of approved volume stood the highest among the 20 batches thus far this year.

Zhejiang Judong and Taizhou Chiho-Tiande were included in this batch, with their volumes accounting for some 43% of the overall approved volume.

The 20th batch of approvals brought total approved copper scrap imports this year to 903,200 mt, down some 70% from the volumes approved in 11 batches last year.
