ISRI updates ferrous and plastic scrap guidelines

USA – The Ferrous Division of the US Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) has approved proposed specifications for low residual, black foundry busheling and low residual, ductile quality shredded clips.

These are: 243 A Low Residual, black foundry busheling – This concerns 1000 series black carbon steel scrap, 1/8 inch and over in thickness; not more than 12 inch x 24 inch; manganese content not more than 0.5% (other parameters subject to agreement between supplier and consumer).

243 B Low Residual, ductile quality shredded clips – This is shredded black 1000 series carbon steel scrap, 1/8 inch and over in thickness; minimum average density of 75 PCF; manganese content not more than 0.5% (other parameters subject to agreement between supplier and consumer).

ISRI has also approved some additional guidelines for mixed bottles and containers and rigid plastics, as well as changes to existing plastic scrap specifications and related information. The changes are part of an on-going project at the Washington-based organisation to help bring its plastics specifications in line with what companies are trading.
