Although paper mills have still sufficient amounts of recovered paper on stock, prices for several grades increased in February on the French market.
Prices have again started to rise on the French recovered paper market. The ordinary grades and some of the higher grades became more expensive in February. Market reports indicate that supply is not excessive and demand is healthy.
February is generally a month of low collection volumes. Several merchants furthermore noted that demand from Germany for ordinary recovered paper grades had been strong and occasionally gave rise to high spot prices on the market. Some suppliers also found better selling opportunities in Asia.
