Boliden Odda

Major zinc and zinc alloy producer

The Odda zinc smelter, established back in the 1920s, is beautifully located right next to Sorfjorden in western Norway. The primary raw materials are zinc concentrates for zinc production. The secondary raw material is recycled zinc. In recent years, Odda has undergone extensive streamlining work with the investments made in new process equipment. The goal is to reach an annual capacity of 200 ktonnes of zinc.
