In this position, Boney is responsible for all aspects of the company's North America business, which includes its manufacturing and recycling facilities across the United States and Canada. For the past 14 years, Boney has served in leadership positions for Novelis in North America, Europe and Asia. His most recent assignment was chief operating officer, Novelis North America, where he led the operations, sales, procurement, recycling and supply chain functions for the region. Prior to joining Novelis in 2006, he spent 19 years with Alcoa in a variety of leadership roles. "Novelis is entering a period of extraordinary transformation in the company's history, and Tom has an excellent track record of leading diverse teams that continually achieve higher results," says Steve Fisher, president and chief executive officer, Novelis Inc.

The company is a subsidiary of Hindalco Industries Ltd., an industry leader in aluminum and copper, and the metals flagship company of the Aditya Birla Group, a multinational conglomerate based in Mumbai, India. The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) has made a unanimous preliminary determination that unfairly traded imports of common alloy aluminum sheet from Bahrain, Brazil, Croatia, Egypt, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Republic of Korea, Oman, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan and Turkey are causing injury to U.S. producers. The preliminary injury determination means that the antidumping and countervailing duty cases against imports from those countries, which the Commerce Department initiated March 30, will proceed. The Commerce Department’s preliminary countervailing duty determinations are due to be completed June 3, and the preliminary anti-dumping duty determinations are due to be completed Aug. 17, though these deadlines could be extended. The Aluminum Association, Arlington, Virgina, has applauded the determination, with the organization’s President and CEO Tom Dobbins saying the association and its members are encouraged by the determination. “It is clear that U.S. aluminum firms are being injured by continued unfair imports in this market and today’s decision is a win for rules-based global trade.” U.S. companies that make common alloy aluminum sheet initially were hurt by a wave of unfair imports from China), the Aluminum Association says. After winning a trade case against China in late 2018, imports from the 18 named countries surged into the United States and inflicted additional injury. Aluminum Association members are participating in the trade cases to return fair pricing to the U.S. market and to ensure that the U.S. industry can use the significant capital investments pursued following the earlier successful unfair trade case against imports from China. “The USITC’s affirmative preliminary decision is an important step in remedying the devastating injury to domestic producers that has been caused by a surge of unfairly traded imports of common alloy aluminum sheet from the various subject countries,” says John Herrmann of New York City-based Kelley Drye & Warren LLP, counsel to the domestic industry. Imports of common alloy aluminum sheet from these 18 countries increased by more than 113 percent between 2017 and 2019, collectively accounting for nearly 70 percent of all U.S. imports, the association says. Common alloy aluminum sheet is a flat-rolled aluminum product that is used in a variety of applications, including transportation, building and construction, infrastructure, electrical and marine applications. According to the Aluminum Association, the U.S. aluminum industry ships about 2 billion pounds of common alloy aluminum sheet each year. The common alloy aluminum sheet subject to the unfair trade investigations is a flat-rolled aluminum product having a thickness of 6.3 millimeters or less but greater than 0.2 millimeters, in coils or cut-to-length, regardless of width, and is manufactured from a 1XXX-, 3XXX- or 5XXX-series alloy. The aluminum sheet subject to investigation includes unclad aluminum sheet, as well as multialloy, clad aluminum sheet. Common uses for the product under investigation include gutters and downspouts, building facades, street signs and license plates, electrical boxes, pontoon boats and tractor-trailers for trucks. Excluded from the scope of the investigations is aluminum can stock that is suitable for use in the manufacture of aluminum beverage cans, lids or tabs.

The new quotas bring the total scrap imports permitted to enter China to date to 529,810 metric tons for copper, 476,579 metric tons for aluminum, 10,330 metric tons for ferrous and about 4.51 million metric tons for recovered fiber. Coastal Resources of Maine has announced its intention to expand the number of Maine municipalities that deliver single-stream recycling to the Hampden, Maine, facility for processing. The company’s decision to suspend a previous requirement that a municipality deliver municipal solid waste (MSW) to the facility to contract for single-stream recycling services comes as the facility approaches its one-year anniversary April 22. “With recycled commodity prices at historic lows, too many communities have suspended recycling programs or limited collection to a few items and now they may be struggling to provide these essential services to their residents during the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Shelby Wright, director of community services at Coastal Resources. “We have a more affordable and stable pricing structure for the processing of recyclable materials and are excited to be at a stage of our operations where we can now offer our state-of-the-art recycling services to communities across the state.” Costal Resources of Maine says this expansion of single-stream recycling services demonstrates the company’s commitment to respond to unexpected shifts in consumer behavior and market fluctuations while maintaining operational standards. “With recycling facilities limiting operations during this period of social distancing, we can report that not only is our process safe, sound and fully operational but, we feel it is our responsibility to provide more Maine communities with disposal options that maintain a hierarchy of recycling over incineration,” says Wright.
