Copper by itself or in any of its alloys is completely recyclable and can be processed over and over again with no loss of quality. Excluding wire production, which requires newly refined copper, about 75% of all copper-based products are made from recycled copper. Recycling copper can reduce the emissions and energy output compared to the mining, milling, smelting and refining of new copper material. When cooper is placed in landfill this is a waste of natural resources and economic resources – as recycled copper is worth up to 90 percent of the cost of the original copper.
Copper is 100% recyclable and its quality would not degrade after processing. Recycling copper has many benefits as follows:
1.Reduce landfill costs. If copper or copper alloy objects are not recycled, they will be dumped in grounds and waste landfill by taking up spaces.
2.Protect environment. The more copper recycled, the smaller the need for mining and refining copper. Mining process requires the usage of time, fossil fuels and energy, while refining process release toxic gases such as sulphur dioxide and dust into air.
3.Save energy. Copper recycling could save 85% of energy required to produce copper. Copper ore is a finite resource, so recycling could also conserve copper.
Henan Doing produced copper recycling process machine can recyclig copper wire and separated copper and plastic.
