2017 ISRI CONVENTION &

2017 ISRI CONVENTION & EXPOSITION most important meeting of the year for plastics recyclers and traders—and for recyclers interested in adding plastics to their recycling stream. For the first time, ISRI is partnering with the Society of Plastics Engineers’ Sustainability Division (Bethel, Conn.) to provide specialized technical content for at least three workshops aimed at increasing the recycled content of automotive plastics: Integrating Unconventional Fillers in Plastics Applications, Recycling Auto Bumpers, and Getting Your Recycled Resins Approved by the Automotive Industry. Other industry experts will provide updates on the virgin and recycled resin markets, strategies for improving bale quality, new business models that could help increase recovery, and a look at the potential disruptions recyclers could face from composite materials in the stream. Education sessions will keep you on top of trends. In addition to the always-popular commodity spotlights bringing you the latest details on market trends, other educational sessions will keep you ahead of the curve on operations, management, financial issues, safety, regulations, and much more. ISRI2017 aims to emphasize global markets, with new “World Focus” sessions on doing business in China, India, and Mexico, plus a look at shipping patterns and the new Panama Canal’s impacts on the scrap trade. Other hot topics include the role of electric-arc furnaces in the scrap industry’s future, using customs trade partnerships to fight against terrorism, recycling batteries from electric vehicles, working with MRFs, establishing a safety culture that improves the bottom line, and the ramifications of the increased use of composites in manufacturing. BUSINESS WITH PLEASURE The value of the social capital you can build through ISRI networks cannot be overstated, nor can your opportunities for personal and professional enrichment. ISRI2017 will offer numerous ways to explore the rewarding human side of scrap recycling. TAKING IT EASY IN THE BIG EASY Music, food, and a festive atmosphere all make New Orleans a great destination. If gambling is your favorite non-recycling activity, you’ll find plenty of excitement at nearby casinos such as Boomtown and Harrah’s, plus the Treasure Chest riverboat casino in Kenner and the New Orleans Fair Grounds Race Course and Slots. Visit www.exploreneworleans.info/html/ casinosNewOrleans.php. Immediately after ISRI2017 is the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, April 28–May 7. More than 425,000 music lovers attended the 2016 event, which featured Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, Buddy Guy, Lauryn Hill, Janelle Monáe, CeCe Winans, Herbie Hancock, Arturo Sandoval, and Chris Botti. Organizers will release information about the 2017 headliners in January. Visit www.nojazzfest.com. New Orleans boasts tours for every taste—fine cuisine and cocktails, history and art, swamps and historic plantations—and mode of transportation, including streetcars, riverboats, and carriages. You can even go ghost hunting in the famous cemeteries of America’s “most-haunted city.” Visit www.neworleanscvb.com/things-to-do/tours/ways-to-tour. With temperatures in the 80s expected in April, you might want to spend time outdoors golfing, fishing, horseback riding, or paddleboating. Take a walk or rent a bike. With a wealth of picturesque parks and views of the Mississippi River at your disposal, having a great experience need not cost a fortune. Even the music is free, with jazz pouring out from clubs on Bourbon Street. Many clubs don’t charge a cover, so dive on in! Finally, don’t miss getting a free praline sample at one of the city’s many candy shops. For more ideas, visit www.neworleanscvb.com/things-to-do/25-free-things-to-do. ISRI2017 will expand—and focus—your networking opportunities. New this year, ISRI2017 will feature not one but three consumer receptions, each following a commodity spotlight session, designed to keep the energy and ideas flowing. The ferrous consumers reception will be Tuesday, April 25, and the nonferrous consumers reception will be Wednesday, April 26, followed by the paper, plastics, and tire/rubber consumers reception. In addition to the opening- and closing-night galas and the daily hospitality areas, receptions for convention first-timers and for young executives will help you make contacts and renew connections. Just for Fun programs showcase the real New Orleans. ISRI2017 organizers have planned three New Orleans–focused program options for anyone who wants to take a break from the convention. On Tuesday, ISRI offers a private city and cemetery coach tour, including lunch at the Court of Two Sisters restaurant in the French Quarter. On Wednesday is a cooking demonstration at the famed New Orleans School of Cooking. And later that evening there’s a French Quarter ghost tour. This walking tour—with stops in notable bars in the neighborhood—is a must-do, Carr says. Awards honor the industry’s achievers. ISRI conventions are a time to recognize individuals’ and companies’ outstanding work. This year ISRI will present the Lifetime Achievement Award to Herschel Cutler, former executive director of ISRI and one of its predecessors, the Institute of Scrap Iron and Steel, and Crawford Carpenter of The Newark Group and Caraustar (Danville, Calif.), a longtime leader of the Paper Stock Industries Chapter and the Recycling Research Foundation. ISRI’s Design for Recycling ® Award, also presented during the convention, honors creativity in the manufacturing sector, recognizing the proactive steps manufacturers take to ensure their products’ recyclability. Recent recipients of the award include Samsung Electronics America, LG Electronics, Dell, Cascades Fine Papers Group, Wind Simplicity, the Coca-Cola Recycling Co., and the Herman Miller Co. ISRI’s Transportation Safety Awards will honor recycling company fleets, drivers, and mechanics in several categories, including Best Fleet (member company with the lowest vehicle accident rate) and Pacesetter (member 68 _ Scrap _ JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2017 www.scrap.org
