One of the biggest challenges that we are facing is how to keep ourselves safe during the on-going pandemic. Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a new respiratory illness caused by a new type, or novel coronavirus previously unseen in humans.
The fact of the matter is that germs are everywhere. You have to expect that there is some kind of microbial presence on metals like Used Beverage Cans (UBCs). UBCs are not clean and they are inevitably been exposed to germs and bacteria, and there are inherent concerns about the Aluminium itself.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person between people who are in close contact with one another or respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. However, recent studies indicate that the virus can be spread by people who are not showing symptoms but it may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it which has been used by an infected person.
For a sustainable environment, metal industry regulators have advised the industry players to temporary stop the collection and processing of Aluminium UBCs. The coronavirus pandemic has obliterated global metals demand, though the metal industries are closely monitoring and forecasting the existing situation of metals and its demand to recover its good health in the new normal.
The metal fabricators, construction industries and all the sources from where the scrap metals generate have experienced slowdown because of sites locked down and other local restrictions.
Recycling companies similar to Lucky Recycling were able to continue operating during the pandemic with strict safety Covid-19 measures. Different regions have different restrictions. Local enforcements play a much greater influence in combating the challenges of COVID-19 but the challenges of COVID-19 were based on proper strategies for long term sustainability like adapted by Lucky Group.
Pandemic have caused financial impact all over the industry. Metal producers, casting industries, components manufacturers, foundry plants and the international trade fairs organizers were negatively impacted.
Industries clearly need to prepare themselves for the upcoming new normal. Nevertheless, the year 2020 can be defined as overwhelming, unexpected, challenging and uncertain faced by billions of humans around the world.
However, despite its devastations and disappointments, the year has presented some valuable opportunities for learning and growth, and these takeaways should not be forgotten as 2020 rolls into 2021.
