PVC Cable!

Got any PVC cables lying around?
In general, PVC cables are recycled mechanically. At the end of their life cycle, cables are recovered by recyclers that, through a process of peeling, separate the conductor (copper) from sheathing and insulation (the plastic materials). The copper is recovered and recycled in the foundry.

Lead recycling makes an important contribution to achieving and maintaining sustainable development in the construction industry through a simple and energy-efficient recovery process. The relatively low melting point of Lead, 327°C, means the process has a low carbon footprint and a minimal environmental impact.

It’s even a common fact Ancient Egyptians were very involved! 🔺️
Due to being a hard wearing metal and its powerful multiple uses, copper remains popular as ever.
