Meeting Room 205 A-C: Level 2

Track: Markets and Global Trade 🛈Topics specific to products that come out of a recycling facility that can be sold as products or feedstock; ferrous metals; nonferrous metals (aluminum, copper, lead, zinc, tin, and precious metals); stainless steel and high-temperature alloys; plastics; recovered fiber (paper, corrugated, cartons); tires/rubber; electronics; glass; textiles; residential recyclers and materials recovery facilities; Basel Convention; OECD; import/export; and tariffs.
Nickel prices outperformed all the other major base metals in 2022, but the meltdown in nickel trading at the London Metal Exchange wreaked havoc for both processors and consumers of recycled nickel and stainless steel. Our panel of recycled materials industry veterans and stainless producers will share their insights on the potential re-balancing of nickel and stainless steel markets going forward.
