Abstract The recovery of scrap metal for recycling contributes to the conservation of natural resources and the construction of a sound material-cycle economy. Dynamic material flow analysis (MFA) allows us to investigate the potential for scrap metal recovery in a given region. This paper performs a dynamic material stock and flow analysis of copper in Japan. Previous studies paid little attention to the grade of the materials; the present paper considers the division between high-purity… CONTINUE READING
