Copper is the third leading metal to be refined, only aluminum and iron are before it. For this reason scrap copper prices are always going to be high due to the large demand for scrap copper and its many applications.
Aside from the automotive industry, the most common application for recycled copper is in plumbing. However it is being used more and more in other things including electronic devices and automobiles.
How much copper do you find in automobiles? 30 years ago a car would contain about 30 pounds of copper now a typically car will have 50 pounds of copper in it and some may have up to 80 pounds of copper in them.
What do they use recycled or scrap copper for in automobiles?
One area where copper can be used in automobiles over and above copper wiring is in the radiators. Typically the radiators are a combination of copper and brass. The copper is found in the fins but the rest is usually brass. In modern day cars we are seeing less and less copper radiators and more and more pure aluminum ones.
