ISRI spotlight on ferrous first to go virtual
The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) is kicking off its annual commodity spotlight series, beginning with a Spotlight on Ferrous, scheduled for Thursday, May 14.
ISRI's commodity spotlight series typically occurs as part of the Annual Convention and Exposition, which was scheduled for the end of April in Las Vegas. This year, due to the event's cancellation, the series has gone virtual for the first time, bringing together economists and recycling industry experts to present recycling commodity market outlooks directly to the industry.
The series kicks off with the Spotlight on Ferrous, taking place Thursday, May 14 at 1:00 p.m. ET.
According to ISRI, already challenging ferrous market conditions have been amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic as the flow of material into scrapyards has been sharply reduced and as steel mills and other scrap consumers have cut their scrap in-take in response to weaker automotive, manufacturing, and consumer sector demand.
ISRI members and other interested industry professionals can join into the ferrous spotlight virtual event for a discussion with industry experts about how recyclers are responding to the crisis and the outlook going forward for the domestic and global steel and scrap markets.
ISRI says additional Spotlights are tentatively scheduled as follows:
- May 20: Spotlight on Copper
- May 27: Spotlight on Aluminum
- June 3: Spotlight on Paper
- June 11: Spotlight on Plastics
The virtual spotlight series is free for ISRI members. The rate for nonmembers is $195.
