The International Recycling Congress (IERC) is an annual event which gathers leaders and professionals within the electronics recycling industry to discuss relevant topics and current issues. Since 2007 the IERC’s International Steering Committee has presented an “IERC Honorary Award” at the event. This award recognizes individuals in the industry who are making a difference.
At the recent Congress held in Salzburg, Austria on January 19-22, Steve Skurnac, global president of Sims Recycling Solutions was presented this award. According to IERC, Skurnac received this award in recognition of his work in promoting the electronics recycling industry. The decision, made by the International Steering Committee, was in honor of his 25 years of tireless work on international markets.
