Copper-An Available Resource for the Future 750181
The U.S. copper and brass industry has just demonstrated in a record-breaking production year (1973) its ability to supply mill products to meet customer needs in a period of high cyclical demand. The industry, in cooperation with its customers, is engineering ever more usefulness and value into each pound of copper used. New applications based on copper's unique combination of properties and on the changing needs of society are in the prototype stage of development. And at a time of upheaval in world markets, the U.S. can depend on its own self-sufficiency in copper-the earth's most recyclable resource.
