Is Recycling Copper Good for the Environment Sciencing

Mining of copper produces dust and waste gases like sulfur dioxide which contributes to air pollution. While miners minimize this pollution by trapping sulfur dioxide gas and using it to make sulfuric acid the process of recycling copper rarely contributes to gas emissions that can pollute the environment.

In fact this extraction increased from 50 at pH 1 to 85.9 at pH 4 with a small drop to 76 at pH 5 possibly due to the formation of goethite FeOOH (see speciation diagram in Fig. 5a). Copper and nickel extraction increased nearly linearly at 1 ≤pH ≤ 5 but this proved to be comparatively lower than zinc and iron extraction.

Natural Gas. Natural gas is obtained by roughly the same methods of extraction and cracking as crude oil (sometimes on the same site) but the plastic industry uses it for its potentially high ethane content a gas that once it has been condensed at below 100°C is another raw material for plastic making.
