    I might as well put this info in here..

    India hasn't a lot of money, and low wages.
    So they put a high import tax on 'new metals' because its probably a big investor or such with plenty of money and can afford the tax bill.


    But, they have low taxes on recycled metals. Like fridge compressors.
    Fridge compressors are made from Ali, Copper and Steel.
    If you export the scrap fridge compressors to India, they use low paid workers to seperate al this metal, then they melt it down and turn it into somethng else.

    By doing this the goverment makes thousands of jobs for unemployed workers.

    Food for thought. Thought for Food. Food for those.

    For folks interested in some of the math offered above, electric motor pricing is based off an estimate of 12% copper recovery per average container (43000lbs-ish) load. This is based upon the assumption that a relatively small number will be motors with either aluminum windings or aluminum and copper windings. So your estimated average for normal size motors (over 2lbs, under 75lbs) is above 12% if the windings are just copper. It is not uncommon to find 20% recovery even. But the pricing is set upon the understanding that there will be low grade aluminum motors mixed in. For larger motors the prices are lower not because of the assumption of aluminum but because of the higher proportion of steel. So for large motors the average assumed recovery is closer to 9-10%. In practice it is higher but pricing will always be conservative.
