AMES COPPER GROUP PROCESS

The AMES Copper Group process is considered a secondary copper refinery and consists of a pyrometallurgical process to transform scrap copper into copper anodes with over 99.7% pure copper. Secondary sources include scrap generated internally, new scrap from metal fabricators, and old scrap from consumer products.

During our process, different types of copper scrap are sorted and sampled, melted in an appropriate furnace, refined, and finally cast into anodes.

Eventually, copper anodes are used in an electrolytic copper cell that produces cathodes 99.99%, pure copper. It is a very efficient recycling process that reintroduces valuable copper into the supply chain using 85% less energy than mining.
