Title: Copper tube; technology mix; market mix, at plant; diameter 15 mm, 1 mm thickness;Extrusion and Drawing based on melting and casting a mix of Copper cathode and Copper scrap;Technology and Market Mix for Tube fabrication representing main European produc (Location: EU-25)

Description

The data set is part of a LCA study on copper products. The study is based on recent industry data supplied by the European copper industry, and thus reflecting the reality in copper semis fabrication. In comparative studies on tubes for various plumbing systems, e.g. drinking water, heating and gas, it is misleading to simply consider the impact of 1 m of tube made from different materials. Plumbing systems are normally designed to transport specified volumes of fluids, with different tube diameters and wall thicknesses required dependent on the choice of material. In addition, consideration must be given to the different design practices, installation and jointing standards and regulatory requirements for each. Many cradle to grave life cycle assessment studies have shown that the environmental aspects from the use and end of life phases of products are often significant. The economic value of copper scrap, based on its ability to be recycled 100% without any loss in performance, ...
