UZ scrap

The operator planned to sell 11.62 thousand tons of raw materials for UAH 45.47 million. But only three auctions out of 25 were held. The company failed to sell 8.99 thousand tons of scrap for more than UAH 34.96 million. This is not the first time that suitable lots have been put up, but buyers are not interested in these types of scrap or consider the cost to be high.

Among the sold scrap metal, there are mainly worn-out parts of the rolling stock. Other lots consist of shavings, wire, engine parts, etc. Such scrap metal is not popular among metallurgical enterprises.
