Sustainability and Copper Recycling RECYCLED COPPER PANS MADE BY EXPERT HANDS IN MEXICO.
At Amoretti Brothers, we know that maintaining some beginnings is essential to have a perspective of quality life, humanity, and awareness of the planet. The first aspect is; why make copper kitchen utensils: Copper is one of the most used metals in the world's traditional cuisine, not only because of its immense beauty but also because of its ability to transmit heat and its material composition. It does not generate a burning release in the form of smoke and other antibacterial qualities.
One of the principal values at Amoretti Brothers is the environmental impact and sustainability of our products, for this reason, these have been made with recycled copper that is 100% recyclable and does not lose its chemical or physical properties even if the process is repeated. The advantages are clear: saving energy is very important since recycling represents 85% less consumption than extracting it. The process of extracting, transporting, smelting and refining is reduced to these last two phases.
Therefore, tons of CO2 are not emitted and valuable reserves of oil, gas, and coal are conserved, assuming a clear benefit for the environment and the obvious reduction in costs. All this will result in an adjustment in the price of copper.
Almost Infinite Raw Material
According to the Copper Development Association, 12% of the world's known copper resources have been exploited throughout history. Of this amount, various estimates indicate that 80% is still circulating. Copper is unlikely to run out: even if extraction decreases, it will continue to circulate, as it can be fully recycled.
Europe is the area of the world with the highest rate of recycled copper use (45% according to data from the International Copper Study Group), while the US has 33.3% (according to data from the United States Geological Survey).
Where is recycled copper generally sourced from?
There are various sources for obtaining copper for recycling, some industries discard copper wire or tape from packaging, transformation industry and/or cable creation that discards portions that have not been processed, garbage separated from technological devices
Obsolete: it is the one that originates in greater quantity. It is made up of products that have completed their functional life cycle, such as construction waste (from plumbing, heating, electrical cables); or electronic equipment and brass products (copper + tin).
Copper recycling can reduce CO2 production by more than 1.25 Gigatons, the equivalent of taking 500 million cars off the road, copper supports the most popular renewable energies.
Deciding to use products made from copper can help reduce the consumption of a lot of energy that pollutes the planet.
