The Materials Recycling Association of India (MRAI) will hold its 7th MRAI International Indian Material Recycling Conference Feb. 7-9 at the Hotel Hyatt Regency in Gurgaon, India, in the capital region southwest of Delhi. Sessions and panel discussions will take place Saturday, Feb. 8, and Sunday, Feb. 9, with MRAI committee meetings taking place Friday, Feb. 7.

The organization says an average of 1,300 delegates attended its previous six events, including an average of 380 from nations outside of India.

MRAI—founded in 2011 and known for its first several years as the Metals Recycling Association of India—says it anticipates more than 1,500 delegates to attend this year's event.

The association says its programming and networking events have been assigned to appeal to traders, processors and consumers of some 10 recyclable commodities.

The event’s Plastic Roundtable session will take place Saturday morning, Feb. 8, while the paper and electronic scrap roundtables will be held that afternoon. Also on Saturday afternoon will be a 1.5-hour “Spotlight on ferrous and stainless scrap, with an overview of [the] South Asian market.”

Aluminum will take center stage Sunday morning in a two-hour “Spotlight on secondary aluminum” session from 10 a.m. to noon. Immediately following that is a one-hour session on the “future of [the] metal trade in India.”

Registrations will be accepted onsite at the Hotel Hyatt Regency in Gurgaon, according to MRAI. More information about the event can be found on this web page
