Copper (Cu) is the 29th chemical element in the periodic table. This metal is softer than iron, but harder than zinc. It is a reddish-coloured metal with a metallic transition lustre that is part of the so-called copper family along with gold and silver. The differences between copper and bronze, although seemingly very similar, are significant and it is necessary to be able to distinguish between the two. When joined with other elements in alloys, its mechanical characteristics are improved, but its conductivity is reduced. There are many copper alloys which, depending on their composition, have different characteristics. The main alloys are bronze and brass.

Copper recycling

The copper recycling process begins with the collection of copper. The copper scrap is then sorted according to its purity. It can be sent directly to the smelter (pure copper) or it can undergo treatment. When the material is liquid, the degree of purity is checked by chemical analysis. If the residues contain oxides, they are melted down to form anodes and then taken to the electrorefining process. After this process, the copper would obtain the desired level of purity and by separating out the valuable impurities it can be used to create copper by-products. In some alloys such as bronze or brass, the refining process is not necessary because the scrap is melted directly to obtain new alloys.
