SCRAP DEMAND VERSUS NEWLY AVAILABLE SUPPLY: 1975-1985
The paper details the methodology and presents preliminary findings of a study to assess the demand for scrap and the supply of newly available ferrous scrap in the U.S. Total scrap demand is determined from assumptions of raw steel production, foundry shipments and leached copper production. Mill and foundry production is used to determine revert scrap generation. Prompt industrial scrap is estimated from mill and foundry shipments to consuming industries. Shipments of these consuming industries are used to estimate ferrous waste becoming available in the period due to obsolescence. Geographic distributions are based on appropriate industry and government census data.
