With the development of our economy, the copper market sees a rapid growth. Now, one third of the copper consumption comes from the recycle of the waste copper. The recycling and status of the transaction of the copper will produce greater influence on the whole copper market. However, our copper recycling market is still not perfect. For this reason, it is necessary to know the movement of copper scrap between countries.
Copper scrap is a domestic issue for all countries, developed countries and developing countries. Most scrap copper is recycled domestically in some developed countries and only an estimated 15% of copper scrap is exported, not so much because of domestic capability but because of market forces. The USA, W. Europe, Japan, Canada, Singapore and Australia ship cable scrap to the developing countries; in particular, China, Vietnam, S. Korea, Mexico, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, India, Pakistan, Argentina, Brazil and Chile. But, 30% of the scrap cables exported annually from the USA, Japan and Europe to developing countries are re-used rather than recycled.
The principal plastic materials used in insulated cables are PVC and polyethylene. In the USA, these plastics are used almost equally. In Western Europe and Japan the use of PVC is greater than the use of polyethylene. After knowing each country’s situation, we can choose proper copper recycling equipment according to the country we are located in.
