Information about Mexico Scrap Recycling
Despite growing by more than 9% annually on average over 2006-2012, metal waste
and scrap recycling industry in Mexico remains small, valued only Mex$208 million
in 2012. Insufficient domestic supply of raw metals pushes Mexican metallurgical
industries to turn to recycled metals. At the same time, the Mexico government
improves waste collection and separation in Mexico to help to sustain the metal
recycling industry development.
Due to the economic and environmental benefits, Mexico has a small metal scrap
recycling industry, but the processors in this country are trying to recover and reuse
the copper and aluminum wires/cables, which is an important part of Mexico metal
recycling industry, and is where the real money and the new energy is.
And to complete efficient wires and cables recycle, the Mexican processors has a lot
of things to do.
A.Separate wires and cables by type
Recoveries vary, so separating high-voltage electrical cable from low-voltage
communications wire allows weighing and grading each type of wires and cables on
their copper or aluminum content. Also separate copper and aluminum wire for
B. Remove all the contaminants:
The wires and cables differs from the pure copper or aluminum value they have, so
the processors will remove the non-copper or non-aluminum items to raise the value
of their wire and cable scrap.
C. Separate copper and aluminum from their polymer jacket
---Stripping wires and cables: advanced stripper machine makes it easy to separating
copper and aluminum from their insulated layer.
---Melting wires and cables: burning is another commonly-used method in Mexico.
---Grinding-chopping-granulating: This is the most common method in Mexico for its
clean and pure process by wire/cable granulators, and the process breaks up the wires
and cables to sort copper and aluminum from the polymers.
Mexico Scrap Wires/Cables Recycling Outlook
The emerging economy of Mexico will lead the scrap wires and cables recyclers to
exhibit more consistent recovery in the future, and the recyclers are experiencing a
different Mexico in the scrap recycling industry that Mexico is taking the scrap metal
recycling industry seriously.
On the raw materials side, Mexico is rich in natural resource, the natural gas, which
can be the fuel resource for scrap metal recovery, making the scrap wires and cables
recovery an attractive business for electronic manufacturers, regulators and recyclers,
