Polish market remains important for Ukrainian metal and scrap-procurement companies.
According to the UAVtormet association president Volodymyr Bublei, Poland is undergoing metal industry modernization.
The “green” course and the intention to make competitive products determine transition to the electric manufacture of steel, which in its turn demands additional resources.
Bublei says Poland could become a potential partner for the import of Ukrainian scrap. According to preliminary estimates, imports of scrap from Ukraine could amount to 500-600 thousand tons per year.
Moreover, Polish foundries, specializing in the manufacture of alloyed steel, are potential consumers of “military” scrap, which Ukraine almost does not process. Such scrap could be processed into products for the Ukrainian Armed Forces. (Ukrainian metal)
