The January/February Scrap features a 2018 recycling industry outlook from ISRI’s commodities experts, Joe Pickard and Bernie Lee. Global economic growth, pro-business tax reform, and positive fundamentals are good signs for the industry, while Chinese import policy changes have the biggest downside potential for many—but not all—scrap sectors.
Other features in this issue:
- Postconsumer plastics’ outlook after the Chinese ban
- Recycled fiber demand, price, and volatility discussions at RISI’s conference in Chengdu, China
- Alternative-fuel vehicles can pose hidden risks when crushed, baled, or shredded
- Multiprocessor attachments make short work of the mixed materials on demolition sites
- ISRI2018 convention preview: Plan now to attend the show April 14-19 in Las Vegas.
Coming in the March/April issue are the ISRI2018 convention and exposition guide, profiles of incoming ISRI Chair Brian Shine and the secretary/treasurer candidates, the state of U.S. freight rail service, domestic nonferrous metal markets, the mixed paper outlook, MRF fire risks from lithium-ion batteries, the role of ringmills in scrap separation, and much more.
