Elcowire wants to set an example for the mining and metals industry

The copper Elcowire will use has been produced with CO2 emissions that are less than half of the global average (4.1 kg CO2/kg copper) quoted by the International Copper Association, said the company.

Boliden has achieved the emissions goal through the electrification of various stages in the mining process, including a more efficient ore concentration process and the use of green energy.

"Elcowire wants to set an example for the mining and metals industry to produce minerals with a low impact on nature and the climate,"said Elcowire.

"The way we work together to strive for new solutions is placing us on a path to contribute to the long-term improvement of our world. Low-carbon Copper is an excellent example of that," says Paul Gustavsson, chief executive of Elcowire.
