Electronics Scrap Recycling at Aurubis
Scrap copper sits in a heap ahead before being melted down at the Aurubis recycling smelter on April 14, 2014 in Luenen, Germany. Aurubis is Germany's biggest recycler of scrap electronics and extracts metals including copper and gold from chips, hard drives, mobile phones, computers and other electronics devices. Recycling of electronic scrap is gaining in importance as worldwide supplies of metals, especially rare metals such as platinum, silver, tantalum and gold, become increasingly scarce.
