Discontinuation of low-carbon aluminium VAP differential

Fastmarkets has discontinued its aluminium low-carbon differential value-added product, Europe, as of Friday March 1, 2024.

Following an extended period of market consultation, and after the launch on December 1, 2023, of two new European aluminium low-carbon differentials for value added products, Fastmarkets began a phased discontinuation of the MB-AL-0382 aluminium low-carbon differential value-added product, Europe.

The decision was earlier announced to publish MB-AL-0382 alongside the new differentials, MB-AL-0391 aluminium low-carbon differential, billet, Europe, and MB-AL-0392 aluminium low-carbon differential value-added product, ex-billet, Europe, on a monthly basis until March 1.

The historic data for MB-AL-0382 will remain on the dashboard for a period of time.
