    South Korean steelmaker POSCO says operating profit up 9 percent in first quarter

    South Korean steelmaker POSCO on Tuesday said its operating profit for the first quarter of 2018 rose 9 percent from a year ago on firm steel demand and favourable market conditions, beating analyst estimates. The world's fifth-biggest steelmaker said in a statement that it expected steel demand to keep growing thanks to "sustained restructuring in China's steel industry and expectations of recovery in emerging market growth". POSCO posted a consolidated operating profit of 1.49 trillion won (993.4 million pounds) for the January-to-March period, compared with 1.37 trillion won a year earlier and an average estimate of 1.37 trillion won from 16 analysts polled by Reuters.

    'Urban mining' in South Korea pulls rare battery materials from recycled tech

    Workers at a rural South Korean factory are busy extracting some of the world's most coveted metals, used in the batteries that power electric cars. Instead, they are sorting through a pile of lithium-ion batteries from old mobile phones and laptops. As China’s aggressive hunt for overseas cobalt and lithium for electric vehicles pushes up prices and causes a global shortage of the key metals, South Korea is increasingly turning to such "urban mining" to recover cobalt, lithium and other scarce metals from electronic waste.

    Trump to impose steep tariffs on steel, aluminium; stokes trade war fears

    President Donald Trump announced on Thursday he would impose hefty tariffs on imported steel and aluminium to protect U.S. producers, risking retaliation from major trade partners like China, Europe and neighbouring Canada. Trump said the duties, 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminium, would be formally announced next week, although White House officials later said some details still needed to be ironed out. Trump believes the tariffs will safeguard American jobs, but many economists say the impact of price increases for users of steel and aluminium, such as the auto and oil industries, will destroy more jobs than curbs on imports create.
