The hottest scrap export in China reached the high

China's scrap steel exports reached the highest level in recent years, with a year-on-year increase of thousands of times

recently, it was learned from the China Iron and steel industry association that China exported 2.203 million tons of scrap steel in 2017, while only about 1000 tons were exported in 2016, with a year-on-year increase of thousands of times

in 2017, China fully cleared the "ground bar steel" and shut down the medium frequency furnace. According to industry estimates, affected by this, about 70 to 80 million tons of scrap has no original market, and the gates of major domestic steel mills are full of scrap delivery vehicles, resulting in a downturn in scrap prices due to oversupply. Therefore, even if the export tariff is as high as 40%, scrap steel is still exported in large quantities and blowout occurs

the output of our company is relatively large. From the perspective of flow direction, the main exporting countries of scrap steel are Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam, and the main exporting places are southeast coastal areas such as Guangdong, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian and Hainan

obtain the experimental results in automatic and manual modes. Steelmaking is divided into long process and short process. The long process is a steelmaking method that takes molten iron, scrap steel and ferroalloy as the main raw materials and is completed in the converter. The amount of scrap steel used is only 10% to 30%. Short process is also known as electric furnace steelmaking method. 70% to 90% of the raw materials are scrap steel

it is understood that at present, short process steelmaking is mainly used in the world, while long process steelmaking is still widely used in China. The main reason is that the electricity price is high and the iron ore price continues to fall, which makes the short process method less economical than the long process method

the relevant person in charge of the Department of raw materials industry of the Ministry of industry and information technology said that after the centralized experimental material was hot-rolled GH4169 nickel base superalloy bars and the "ground bar" was banned in 2017, although long-process enterprises increased the utilization of scrap steel, there was still a lot of difficulty in the scrap steel stage and a periodic oversupply. In order to meet the needs of the future development of the iron and steel industry, we should promote and solve the problems existing in the development of short process steelmaking

the person in charge said that in 2018, China will reasonably guide the development of electric furnace steelmaking. Specifically, it includes: encouraging some long-term process enterprises to transform into electric furnace enterprises according to local conditions; Give appropriate preference to capacity replacement policies for new electric furnace projects in different regions; Encourage small electric furnace enterprises to jointly restructure and accept the transfer of production capacity from surplus areas, and develop advanced electric furnace enterprises; Promote the revision of relevant policies and create a favorable environment for short process steelmaking
