SPECIAL REPORT: The push for cleaner metallics

The world is looking for cleaner metallics. That has been the undeniable tenor from the steel industry for months. The United States already makes a majority of its steel via the cleaner electric-arc furnace production method, and European steelmakers have announced similar investments. In China, the government is cracking down on high-polluting steel output, and it recently announced the removal of import tariffs on clean metallics such as ferrous scrap and pig iron.

In this free whitepaper, the CME Group and Fastmarkets look at the growing importance of clean metallics in the global steel supply chain, and discuss the most effective ways to manage pricing risks for these increasingly volatile commodities.
