The refined copper production can be divided into two main production routes, primary and secondary copper production. Approximately 80% of that refined copper production is primary copper production, where copper is derived from ores.
The other important source of raw material is scrap. Copper scrap, derived from either metals discarded in manufacturing processes or end of life products, contributes to recycling of copper as raw material. This route is the secondary copper production.
