However, the amount drops 6% YoY, indicating a drop in domestic recycling. Of this, 172,000 tonnes of aluminium was recovered from new scrap and 118,000 tonne was recovered from old scrap.

    The average U.S. market price of primary aluminium ingot in January decreased slightly from that in December 2018 to about US$2271 per tonne. The average LME cash price of primary aluminium ingot in January dropped by 4% from that in December 2018 to US$1845 per tonne.
