Donington Park race circuit near Derby is the venue this week for the first ever Metals Recycling Event, which will feature both a conference and exhibition with free pre-registration still available.
The metals recycling event runs alongside the third CARS, the Complete Automotive Recycling Show, which covers all aspects of end of life vehicle (ELV) recycling.
Both events offer unique opportunities to find out more about the metals and ELV sector and also feature a Skills Lab.
Besides a wide range of exhibitors as well as working demonstrations of plant equipment, the event’s conference session will be addressed by speakers from the Environment Agency, international metals traders, trade associations and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
On Wednesday 13 July, the Metals Recycling Event starts with a session on the state of the industry which will hear from Robert Fell, chief executive of the British Metals Recycling Association, Nicky Cunningham, deputy director of site-based regulation at the Environment Agency plus Roger Morton of Axion Recycling. Chair of the session is Roy Hathaway, Europe policy advisor at the Environmental Services Association.
With the conference sessions sponsored by Duesman & Hensel, the CARS conference session will have detailed sessions ranging from the markets for used car parts and smart dismantling through to communicating using social media.
