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.

Oxygen free copper wire

Foxrod for wire drawing
AURUBIS FOXROD has an oxygen content of less than 3 ppm and at the same time has a high electrical conductivity. In addition, it has virtually no impurities. These properties make AURUBIS FOXROD an excellent starting product in the further processing of all types of copper wire, including very thin wire. It should be used for wires where hydrogen embrittlement is a problem, such as fire-resistant cables.

Foxrod for continuous extrusion
The very clean metallic surface, free of organic carbon, makes AURUBIS FOXROD excellent for continuous extrusion applications.
Throughout the FOXROD manufacturing process, particular attention is paid to purity. The furnaces and dies are made of copper-repellent, chemically inert material to avoid possible contamination. The wire is produced without protective wax, but special precautions are taken to prevent oxidation of the wire.

Blue Brass®

Aurubis Stolberg has developed the BlueBrass® family of alloys, which combines the current standards of the electrical and automotive industries in terms of conductivity, machinability and formability with the increasing demand for lead-free products.
It is excellent for producing lead-free connectors.
Its electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance are fully comparable to the machining brass currently in use.

Applications:
  • Automotive sector
  • Electrical industry
  • Construction industry
  • Air-conditioning technology
In addition to its strength, this alloy’s formability is much higher than brass alloys containing lead, to an extent that was previously only possible with lead-free alloys with poor machinability.
