"It will take China at least another decade to become self-efficient in its supply of aluminum scrap as the nation only started using raw aluminum in the mid 1990s, and the metal needs 30 years to degenerate into scrap," said Liu Bo, vice manager of Chinalco's Nela Import and Export Corp. "China consumed 3.9 million tons of aluminum scrap in 2010, 73% of which were imported."
