CRU, London, and FRH Aluminum, Lenoir City, Tennessee, plan to host the Aluminum Recycling Technical Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. The conference will be held at the Radisson Hotel Nashville Airport Oct. 15 and 16.
CRU and FRH Aluminum’s Bob Hubbard will host the technical conference dedicated to the aluminum scrap market. Hubbard has spent 49 years in the aluminum industry. He began his career at Pittsburgh-based Alcoa in 1970 and held various technical and management positions throughout his 20 years at the company. Hubbard spent 27 years working for IMCO, Aleris, and Real Alloy, Beachwood, Ohio, where he worked with aluminum melting, scrap and dross recovery and alloy specifications. Hubbard left the company in 2017 and started working at FRH Aluminum.
Industry experts from Wendt Corporation, TSI Inc., JT Thorpe, Amcor, Mechatherm International and several other companies will present on new technology concepts and best practices to educate attendees on the benefits of efficiently sourcing, preparing, receiving, sorting and recovering aluminum scrap. CRU and FRH Aluminum say the conference is an opportunity to hear from speakers as well as exchange experiences with other key players in the industry in an informal learning and networking environment.
Given the current dynamics at play in the U.S. scrap and primary aluminum markets, the importance of the efficient use of aluminum scrap is unprecedented, the companies say.
According to CRU, companies operating at any point in the aluminum value chain could benefit from this technical conference, especially those in the secondary, rolling, extrusion, forging and casting segments. Area supervisors, production and plant managers, purchasing specialists, strategic planners, owners, chief financial officers and CEOs are invited to attend the conference and join the discussion.
