It is likely that with such dynamics, the export of scrap metal by the end of 2021 will exceed 1.5 million tons, so Ukrainian metallurgists are seeking a complete ban on its export until the end of 2023.

The export of scrap metal from Ukraine in the first half of the year increased 14 times to 231 thousand tons

Ukrainian enterprises in January-June of this year increased the export of ferrous scrap by 13.7 times compared to the same period last year - up to 230.97 thousand tons, including 84.63 thousand tons of scrap in June .

According to statistics released by the State Customs Service, in monetary terms, the export of scrap metal increased 19.2 times - up to 82.86 million dollars, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

At the same time, in January-June of this year, the country increased the import of scrap metal in physical terms by 36.6% - up to 12.55 thousand tons. In monetary terms, the import of scrap increased 2.1 times - up to $ 22.331 million.

The import of scrap metal in January-June of this year was carried out mainly from Turkey (62.36% of deliveries in monetary terms), the Russian Federation (30.73%) and the USA (1.82%); export - to Turkey (97.05%), Germany (0.83%) and Lithuania (0.69%).

Earlier it was reported that the Cabinet of Ministers may introduce a temporary ban on the export of scrap metal if the European Union applies such measures.

Recall that the metallurgical lobby of Ukraine called on the government to immediately impose a ban on the export of scrap metal for 3 years. A corresponding appeal was sent to Prime Minister Denis Shmyhal by the impoverishment of Ukrmetallurgprom and Turboprom. Later, they were joined by the electric steel-making complex "Interpipe Steel" of the international vertically integrated tube-and-wheel company "Interpipe" (Dnipro), which melts steel in electric furnaces and consumes scrap metal as raw materials.
