Polish wastepaper prices dip again in Q4, with sorted graphic paper down by as much as 100 Polish zloty per tonne, other grades off by 50-60 Polish zloty per tonne in October, November; trend expected to continue through December
December 6, 2011
– Wastepaper markets in Poland continued to decline in the first two months of the fourth quarter, and the downward trend was expected to continue at least until the end of 2011, said sources, reported EUWID-Paper on Dec. 6.
Prices for sorted graphic paper for deinking fell by 100 Polish zloty (US$30) per tonne due to slow business for converters of the grade. Other recovered paper grades in Poland fell by 50 to 60 Polish zloty per tonne. Prices offered for export orders were down even more sharply.
The additional price cuts during October and November were attributed to weak demand in Poland and nearby countries. Even if markets moderate in December, it would not be enough for a market rebound in Poland, EUWID-Paper reported.
