Daily review on the price of waste aluminum

The price of aluminum is up 100 yuan per ton today. Waste aluminum recyclers generally feedback that the recent downstream demand is not good, the willingness to increase prices is low, and in raw aluminum acquisitions, price reduction acquisitions. The cargo yards in Shandong, Henan, Guizhou, Guangdong, Shanghai and other places almost acted in unison. Except for a small number of recyclers with lower inventories, most of the holders quoted discount clinker prices at A00 aluminum prices today, while the prices of non-discount cooked aluminum and raw aluminum remained stable. As for the buyer, recycled aluminum enterprises due to the lack of ADC12 price rise, considering the impact of imported aluminum alloy ingots, are willing to reduce the purchase price, only a small amount of inventory to reduce the recent purchase of raw aluminum.
