Electrostatically Recovering Copper Wire

A combination of an ElectroStatic Separator and a Metal Separation Module is enabling the recovery of fine copper and other metals from a waste product at a UK metal recycling company. The Bunting ElectroStatic Separator, launched earlier in 2020, significantly enhances the ability of companies to recover fine metals such as copper wire.  In this…

Around 50% of copper used in Europe is obtained from recycling rather than newly mined ore (International Copper Study Group – ICSG). Indeed, copper is widely regarded as one of most recycled engineering metals with much of the world’s globally mined copper, some 0.32 trillion kilogrammes, still in circulation. In a typical home there is…
