  • Aluminium prices

    Scrapped some Aluminium today,got $1.35 kg for extrusion and $0.80kg for domestic,slight rise on the last lot I did a few months back,i thought Aluminium woulld drop considerably with Alcoa closing in Geelong and the car industry winding down,

    Those two things are merely blips when it comes to world aluminium prices. Our auto industry consumed barely any aluminium, and Alcoa only produces around 15% of what QAL does in Gladstone. Aluminium is very difficult and costly to produce from raw bauxite, so scrap aluminium is usually in fairly high demand.
