SMM: on September 23, 2020, Qiu Qiwen, director of the solid waste and Chemicals Department of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, organized a coordination meeting on the national standards of "recycled iron and steel raw materials" in Beijing. Jiang Wei, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee of China Iron and Steel Association, Ai Chong, Resources Department of the Energy Saving Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Li Ning, General Administration of Customs, Zhou Bingyan, Chinese Academy of Environmental Sciences, Lu Chunsheng, Metallurgical Industry Information Standards Research Institute, Wang Xinyue, China scrap Steel Application Association, Luo Xiaogang, Ouye chain Gold Renewable Resources Co., Ltd., and related comrades attended the meeting.

Jiang Wei introduced the background, process and existing problems of the national standard of "recycled Iron and Steel Raw Materials". He pointed out that since the beginning of this year, the iron and steel industry has made remarkable achievements in overall promoting epidemic prevention and control and economic development, and has made steady progress in production and operation, meeting the demand for steel products for the resumption of work and production in China's economy. At the same time, according to customs statistics, from January to August, the country imported a total of 759.915 million tons of iron ore, an increase of 75.396 million tons over the same period last year, an increase of 11.0%. At the end of August, the price of CIOPI imported iron ore (62 per cent fine ore) was US $123.25 per tonne, up US $39.4 per tonne from a year earlier, or 46.99 per cent. It is suggested that the national standard of "recycled iron and steel raw materials" should be formulated as soon as possible, and make good use of international and domestic recycled iron and steel raw In the near future, the State Administration of Market Supervision and Administration will issue a project plan for "recycled steel raw materials".

In early October, the standard-setting unit will hold a national standard launch meeting for "recycled iron and steel raw materials" to speed up the formulation, promulgation and implementation of national standards. Lu Chunsheng, secretary general of the National Pig Iron and Ferroalloy Standardization Technical Committee of the Metallurgical Industry Information Standards Research Institute, analyzed in detail the main technical indicators of the national standard of "recycled iron and steel raw materials". The establishment and inspection rules of harmful substances, dangerous substances and inclusions in recycled iron and steel raw materials are described in detail. He pointed out that through a large number of data and experimental verification, the indicators and inspection methods established by the standards can support the inspection requirements of the Customs, creating conditions for meeting the import of high-quality recycled iron and steel raw materials and promoting the effective use of international resources as soon as possible. The leaders and experts of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the General Administration of Customs, the China Academy of Environmental Sciences, the China scrap Steel Application Association and Ouye Lianjin Renewable Resources Co., Ltd. fully discussed the tax issues, customs codes and variety structure of recycled iron and steel raw materials.

The meeting held that banning the entry of foreign garbage and promoting the reform of the solid waste import management system are landmark measures in the construction of ecological civilization, and that the country's gradual realization of zero import of solid waste is a concrete action to implement Xi Jinping's thinking on ecological civilization. it is also a specific requirement of the newly revised Law of the people's Republic of China on the Prevention and Control of Environmental pollution by solid waste. The standard of recycled iron and steel raw materials should be defined as high-quality recycled iron and steel raw materials, which should not only be distinguished from traditional solid wastes such as scrap iron and steel, but also consistent with the reform direction of solid waste import management system. At the same time, it is necessary to fully consider the maneuverability of the standard and coordinate with the classification of customs commodity codes to facilitate the law enforcement and supervision of relevant departments.

Qiu Qiwen stressed that the leading party group and leaders of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment attached great importance to the formulation of standards for recycled iron and steel raw materials and issued instructions and requirements for many times. The solid waste and Chemicals Department of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, together with relevant departments, has studied and promoted the formulation of standards for many times. Since the beginning of this year, the China Iron and Steel Association has taken the lead in organizing the preparation of standards and made phased progress. In order to complete the national standard of "recycled Iron and Steel Raw Materials" well and quickly, the next step is to compile the inverted construction period of the unit and perfect the standard text as soon as possible. At the same time, the solid waste and Chemicals Department of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment will give full play to the role of the office of the inter-ministerial coordination group for prohibiting foreign waste entry and promoting the reform of solid waste import management system, and cooperate with relevant departments to promote the promulgation and implementation of standards as
