Nine Dragons Paper (Holdings) 's factories were granted a total of 61.840 tons. Long Chen Paper is granted 37.080 tons. As a result, China with both licenses has now granted RCP import licenses for 2019 totaling 5.47 million tons.

China is reviewing some import regulations

It is noteworthy that China is reviewing some regulations on importing scrap. Specifically, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment of China announced that it is considering easing regulations in the import of recycled and recycled aluminum.

To summarize, this action of China shows that strict RCP import regulations may be eased and it can be considered as a recyclable resource for production. Currently, RCP is still being considered as “waste paper” by authorities.
