International Steel Scrap 2022

None June 23, 2022 1 day 750.0 (Early Bird Physical) 395.0 (Early Bird Virtual)



As the global steel industry accelerates its decarbonisation ambitions, steel scrap is increasingly regarded as key to reducing carbon emissions. China’s plans to transition significant production to EAF route will drive increased use of scrap. While Turkey, by far the world’s largest scrap importer is expanding production capacity, becoming ever more dependent on scrap. As scrap becomes increasingly important, how likely are we to see more countries resort to restricting scrap exports to maintain their competitive advantage?To what extent will sanctions on Russia and the war in Ukraine impact steel supply, scrap availability and trade flows.

In addition to trade shocks and shifting supply and demand, volatile exchange rates and freight rates, and surging energy costs are pulling scrap in all directions. Will rising energy costs intensify competition for higher scrap grades? Which grades will be more popular and how will global scrap trade evolve in 2022? Join us for the 2nd International Steel Scrap 2022 conference where renowned steel and scrap experts from around the world will present their analysis on recent steel scrap market trends and share their views of what we can expect in 2022 and the next few years.

Key topics to be covered:

  • Russian-Ukraine war and sanctions, steel trade in turmoil
  • Evolution of global scrap consumption with green steel targets
  • Further scrap export restrictions to secure national resources
  • Impact of surging energy costs on demand for higher grade scrap 
  • Competition for higher grade scrap driving price premiums
  • Other raw materials in focus – Iron ore, DRI, HBI, Pig Iron and ferro alloys
  • Effect of increase in BF’s scrap consumption
  • Changes in the flow of global steel trade
  • Effect of economic conditions on Turkish scrap demand
  • Turkey’s ability to source scrap at desired prices
  • Effect of China’s rising EAF share on international scrap market activity
  • New scrap suppliers on the horizon
  • Steel industry margins of 2021 vs 2022 compared
