Event Overview

The International Copper Recycling Conference returns for a 4th year with Barcelona playing host to this unique event focused on copper’s re-use and recycling industry dynamics. Use of copper continues to grow, pushing recycled scrap and residues further into the fore making them key to industry balances. With nearly 40% of copper used each year coming from secondary sources, the influence and dynamics of scrap copper are impossible to ignore for any part of the copper industry. As copper scrap’s importance grows, the value chain has become more complex and while recycling data continues to be vague and opaque, this event will provide a transparent, informative discussion of the key issues affecting copper recycling. This event brings together the key members of copper recycling supply chain from scrap generators and processors, primary and secondary smelters and refiners, ingot makers and fabricators, governmental bodies and policymakers, scrap merchants, traders and technology and equipment suppliers.
