After a one-month consultation period, Fastmarkets has launched a monthly assessment for Ferrous scrap No E40 (shredded steel scrap), delivered to mill, Italy, €/tonne.

The consultation period ended on March 14, with the assessment coming into effect from March 15.

The introduction of the price will expand Fastmarkets’ Italian scrap market coverage, complementing its monthly assessments for domestic E3 and E8 grade scrap in Italy. The launch of the new price will allow Fastmarkets to cover all main grades of the material in Italy.

It will also bring Fastmarkets’ coverage of the Italian domestic scrap market in line with its coverage of the German market where Fastmarkets already had monthly assessments for domestic E3, E8 and E40 ferrous scrap grades.
