When copper was first mined around 10000 years ago, it was a landmark in the history of mankind. The ‘Copper Age’ saw man move from stone to copper tools for farming and hunting. A hundred centuries later, copper remains an indispensable material, used extensively across the spectrum, for power grids, appliances and electronics, construction or transport.
What’s more, the future use of copper to build renewable infrastructure is even more critical, as it becomes increasingly imperative to move towards green energy. This infographic explores, in depth, the tremendous value of copper – both in present and future.
