Commerce Department Investigating Imports of Steel Cylinders from China

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): The U.S. Department of Commerce on April 17 announced the initiation of antidumping and countervailing duty investigations of imports of non-refillable steel cylinders from China.

The investigations are in response to petitions filed by Worthington Industries of Columbus, Ohio.

The alleged dumping margin is 53.76 percent, and it is alleged that 21 subsidy programs support the production of the Chinese cylinders.

In 2019, imports of non-refillable steel cylinders from China were valued at $21.5 million.
