ISRI updates some scrap specifications

The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) has updated the 2007 Scrap Specifications Circular with revisions to three non-ferrous specifications and the addition of a new specification. The Circular is available on the ISRI website at

ISRI’s board of directors approved recommendations from the non-ferrous division to revise the Zorba (shredded non-­ferrous scrap, predominantly aluminum), Ebony (composition or red brass) and Eland (high grade-low lead bronze brass solids) specifications during their October governance meeting in Boston. A new specification was also approved named Zurik (non-ferrous sensor-sorted scrap predominantly consisting of stainless). The new specifications will become effective on November 19, 2007.
