About the Aluminum Spotlight
Aluminum Spotlight: A Better Year for Aluminum Markets? - Tuesday, April 27, from 12:45 to 1:45 p.m. EDT.
As with other metal markets last year, the COVID-19 pandemic had massive implications for the aluminum and aluminum scrap industries. Supply disruptions at recycling facilities and reclamation centers, demand fluctuations in response to auto industry shutdowns and restarts, and on-going transportation bottlenecks were just a few of the major market challenges last year. From this spotlight session, attendees will be able to recognize major challenges and opportunities, identify where aluminum scrap demand growth will come from, and the effects of regulatory changes and trade policy on the U.S. aluminum industry. Join us for this aluminum spotlight discussion.
ISRI2021 will be held virtually April 20-22, and April 27-29. The most up-to-date speaker and event details can be found at ISRI2021.org.
