IERC accepting registrations while BIR reports sellout

Oct 20, 2021

IERC accepting registrations while BIR reports sellout Electronics recycling conference in Austria set for mid-January 2022; BIR Brussels event is Oct 25-26. Switzerland-based ICM AG is accepting registrations for the 20th International Electronics Recycling Congress (IERC). The IERC 2022 event will take place onsite in Salzburg, Austria, Jan. 19-21. ICM is marketing IERC as “a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face again with your industry network of colleagues, clients and suppliers to gain insights and engage in the most cutting-edge discussions within the electronics recycling community.” The conference host expects exhibitors in some 50 booths while the program will feature three days of presentations and workshops. More information about the event, including how to register, can be found on this web page . Later this month, the Brussels-based Bureau of International Recycling (BIR) is hosting its first-person event in about two years and the conference is sold out. The BIR Global Trading Forum is Oct. 25-26 in Brussels at the Steigenberger Wiltcher’s Hotel. BIR says it expects more than 450 participants representing more than 285 companies from 44 countries. “While we are absolutely thrilled to welcome so many participants in Brussels, we unfortunately had to limit the number of additional participants we can welcome at the venue in order to ensure the wellbeing of all participants and in accordance with current Belgian Covid-19 regulations,” states BIR. BIR also is offering online access to presentations and webinars tied to the Global Trading Forum, with more information available on this web page . Workers at an Atlanta location of Pittsburgh-based Liberty Tire Recycling LLC have voted in favor of joining International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 728. According to that union, drivers and other employees “reached out to the Teamsters in early September seeking improved working conditions, higher wages and better benefits.” Liberty Tire Recycling is owned by Summit, New Jersey-based ECP Management LP, which purchased it from New York-based investment fund The Carlyle Group in a transaction that was announced this April . As of October 19, there is no comment or reaction from Liberty Tire Recycling or ECP about the Teamsters campaign or the outcome of the vote. A Teamsters news release says the vote to unionize passed “by a more than 3-1 margin.” That same news release quotes Luis Herrera, identified as a 25-year driver for Liberty and a member of the facility’s organizing committee, as saying, “This win means a lot to me and my co-workers. We fought hard for this day, and we are very happy to be Teamsters. Now that we have our union, we will continue fighting to address the issues that the company has been ignoring for years. It's time for this company to treat its workers right.” According to the union, Herrera and his co-workers reached out to the Teamsters after “they had gone more than a decade without a raise.” The vote for union representation in Atlanta marks the first group of workers at Liberty Tire to join the Teamsters, says the union. The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), Washington, has received a $160,000 grant from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to fund fire safety education and training for recyclers. According to the award, ISRI plans to use the funding to provide four hours of fire safety training to 500 employers and workers in the scrap metal and municipal recycling industries. ISRI reports that its targeted audience includes limited-English speaking, temporary and hard-to-reach workers. Training topics will focus on fire safety hazard recognition and will be offered in both English and Spanish. ISRI did not provide Recycling Today with details on when this training will be available and if it has an associated cost. The grant is part of OSHA’s 2021 Susan Harwood Training Grant program . ISRI reports that it will use the funding to revise its existing Susan Harwood Training materials. OSHA reports that it has awarded more than $11.6 million in grants through the Susan Harwood Training Grant program to 93 nonprofit organizations nationwide. The grants fund education and training on hazard recognition and prevention. ISRI also received this $160,000 grant as part of the Susan Harwood Training Grant program in 2020, which it used to form a “Hazard Recognition in Shipping/Receiving and Loading Dock Areas” safety training program. Teijin Frontier Co., a fibers and products converting company based in Tokyo, has announced the launch of a recycling facility that will convert polyethylene terephthalate bottles (PET) bottles into recycled polyester pellets. The facility will be operated by Teijin Polyester Ltd. (TPL), a subsidiary of Teijin Frontier, and will produce pellets for polyester filament manufacturing. According to a news release from Teijin, the facility will open in early 2022 and is expected to produce 7,000 tons of recycled polyester pellets annually by fiscal 2025. Teijin Frontier will install cleaning equipment and the latest pelletizing machinery to remove foreign substances from the recycled PET bottles before they are extruded into pellets. TPL will use Teijin Frontier’s proprietary quality control technologies in its system for turning plastic bottles into recycled polyester pellets. The company says the raw yarn produced at TPL will be used in Teijin Frontier's Ecopet recycled filament yarn. Teijin Frontier, guided by its Think Eco environmental initiative, says it aims to improve its environment by developing environmentally friendly materials and products for applications ranging from clothing to industrial materials. The Washington-based American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) has announced Eric Steiner as its vice president of government affairs. Steiner will help lead the paper and wood products industry’s legislative agenda and drive advocacy efforts before Congress, the Biden administration and state governments. Steiner becomes vice president for government affairs Nov. 1. Steiner joins AF&PA from Elanco Animal Health, where he served as senior director of government affairs. In this role, Steiner led policy development, directed lobbying efforts, oversaw legislative and regulatory strategy and advocacy. He also built external coalitions and led internal cross company teams. Before Elanco, Steiner worked in government affairs for Kraft Foods and served as senior professional staff for the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry. He also served as a senior executive political appointee at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and helped lead government affairs for the National Association of Wheat Growers. “We are excited to have Eric bring his notable experience to our outstanding government affairs team,” says Heidi Brock, CEO of AF&PA. “His previous work experience in the U.S. Senate, USDA, a trade association and two publicly traded companies will be key to communicating our industry’s essential role in manufacturing renewable and recyclable paper and packaging products while contributing to a more sustainable future.” Steiner earned a Bachelor of Science in agricultural education from Purdue University and a Juris Doctor from the George Mason University School of Law. “I am pleased to join AF&PA’s talented government affairs team, as well as an industry that deeply values safety, sustainability and diversity, equity and inclusion,” Steiner says. “I look forward to building on these efforts in advocating for a strong and sustainable paper and wood products industry.”
