Spent the last 20 years in the secondary aluminum market, working with great companies like Audubon metals and Toyota Tsusho America, where I learned the who, what, why, and where of aluminum scrap in North America. Currently I am working with a Technology start-up Sortera Technologies where we utilize various sensors and homegrown software and Artificial Intelligence to identify, classify, and sort mixed materials.
