The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) disclosed a new nonferrous specification published in the Scrap Specifications Circular 2014.
Approved by the ISRI nonferrous division and board of directors, the new specification states that, “Thorn-Aluminum Breakage shall consist of aluminum with miscellaneous contaminants like iron, dirt, plastic and other types of contaminants. Material can either be sold based on aluminum recovery or content as agreed upon by buyer and seller. It must also contain a minimum of 33 percent aluminum unless otherwise agreed upon by buyer and seller.”
The Scrap Specifications Circular contains standard specifications that are intended to assist market participants in the buying and selling of their materials and products.
