Comparing the costs and benefits of virgin and urban mining

2021-5-27  The urban mining costs for copper and aluminum are listed in Table 1. In e-waste recycling, the estimated costs for one ton each of copper and aluminum were approximately 12,748 and 3,802 US$, respectively. The recycling costs of ELVs and WWC for the equivalent copper and aluminum amounts are much lower than the cost of e-waste recycling.
