Many countries and areas has encouraged people to recycle the waste cables containing copper and PVC. Well, what is the importance of recycling waste cables containing copper and PVC to make the country pay so more attention? Actually, recycling waste cables containing copper and PVC has economic benefits, environmental benefits and resource benefits.
Uses of copper and PVC
Firstly, the recycled copper is a valuable resource, which can sold directly on the metal trading market. The price can reach to about 8,020 USD/T. Besides, it can also be made into other new products, like copper foils, copper clad laminate, car wires, telephone wires, etc. in the construction, transportation, communication industry, to bring considerable profit. As for the plastic, it can also be used to make recycled plastic pellets by extrusion.
Most waste cables are ended up in being buried in landfills, which will occupy a large amount of land. And once corroded by rainwater, it will cause land pollution and water pollution. In addition, PVC is a plastic that can release harmful chemicals when disposed of improperly.
Recycling waste cables containing copper and PVC helps to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, which will reduce environmental pollution and protect human health.
Copper is the third most consumed metal in the world. This versatile metal is mined in countries like Chile, Zambia, Kazakhstan, and Canada. Open-pit mining is the most commonly mined way to get copper. However, it has a devastating impact on the environment, because it will cause deforestation & land degradation and water pollution, it also affects environmental and human health.
However, Recycling waste cables containing copper offers a sustainable alternative to copper mining. Copper recycling takes 80%–90% less energy than copper mining. With more recycled copper available, new mining operations don’t need to be built, and no environment needs to be disturbed.
Now that with so importance of recycling waste cables containing copper and PVC, how do we separate copper from PVC out of waste cables? A recycling machine, called waste cables recycling machine, will be a good helper.
Waste cables recycling machine
Waste cables recycling machine is mainly designed for processing waste cables and wires, no matter copper wires, or aluminum wires. It can use a dry type physical separation method to separate copper and PVC from waste cables through crushing and separating, without use water, fire or chemical solution, thus produce no pollution to environment. Besides, it takes advantage of the different gravity and conductivity of copper and PVC to separate copper from PVC, which can reach to the separation rate of 99%.
