Recycling at Aurubis

Aurubis is a world leader in recycling copper, precious metals and other non-ferrous metals – which contributes to raw material security and environmental protection.

Europe has a high copper demand but limited natural resources. Metal recycling opens up the metal reserves bound to products and therefore makes a considerable contribution to the supply of copper and other metals. Recycling copper, silver, gold and other non-ferrous metals doesn’t detract from the quality of the metals and can be repeated as often as desired.

Metal recycling thus fulfills the criteria for sustainable development and is the foundation of modern recycling management. It conserves natural resources, reduces energy demand and prevents the loss of valuable materials.

Aurubis has state-of-the-art technologies to return highly complex materials to the economic cycle. High-quality products are thus produced from recycling raw materials of various qualities and compositions.
