Launching metals with low climate impact

As the first company in the world, Boliden now offer two separate copper products, produced with drastically lower carbon footprint than the global average. One product, Low-Carbon Copper, is produced from concentrate from Boliden’s own copper mines. The other product, Recycled Copper, has the same emission standards as Low-Carbon Copper, but is produced from secondary raw material such as used electronics and other applications.

Low-Carbon Copper

Less than 1.5kg CO2eq/kg Copper

Boliden’s low-carbon copper is produced from copper mined in our own mines in the north of Sweden, using a clean energy. This gives the product one of the lowest carbon footprint of any refined coppers in the world.

By using Boliden Low-carbon Copper, the carbon footprint of your copper products will be reduced significantly compared to other available alternatives.

Recycled Copper

Less than 1.5kg CO2eq/kg Copper

The primary raw material for Boliden’s recycled copper is used electronics. By efficiently recovering all the metals that has been circulated in society, the need for new mines can be held at a minimum.

By using Boliden’s Recycled Copper, you will be able to offer a 100% recycled copper product to the market.

It matters where your base metals come from

Copper plays a crucial role in the green transition. Renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power, and the electrification of vehicles, will require large amounts of copper.

Copper mining and smelting activities are known to generate significant amounts of CO₂ emissions. However, Boliden has a favorable integration of own mines and smelters, located in the north of Sweden.

This enables us to produce a copper with drastically lower carbon footprint than the global average.

This is one of our initiatives to contribute to our vision - to be the most climate friendly and respected metal provider in the world.
