LOW-CARBON COPPER

REDUCTION OF CO2 EMISSIONS BY MORE THAN 50%
FOR A SUSTAINABLE, ELECTRIFIED FUTURE

LOW-CARBON COPPER AVAILABLE IN OUR PRODUCTS

Half of the carbon emissions over its production processes, compared to the global average footprint for standard copper.

Low-carbon copper is made possible through production that has undergone a substantial transformation due to electrification and automation of various stages of the process. The Low-carbon Copper has also been made possible by a very efficient ore concentration process and a world-class green energy mix. The result is copper wire rod that has a low impact on nature and the climate.

 

The significantly lower CO2 emissions of the Low-carbon Copper are verified through several validation processes. The reporting protocol that was used for verification is the Greenhouse Gas Protocol – Product Life Cycle Accounting and Reporting Standard. The product was also validated and reviewed against the general principles in ISO 14064-3 Standard

DOGGER BANK C 

A BREAK-THROUGH FOR LOW-CARBON COPPER

The Dogger Bank C project, the third phase of the world’s largest offshore wind farm, becomes a landmark for sustainability. It introduces Low-carbon Copper solutions as the new standard for large renewable energy projects. And the companies behind this – Boliden, Elcowire and NKT – all play important roles in the process.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS ABOUT LOW-CARBON COPPER

Our Low-carbon Copper and Recycled Copper has less than half of the global average CO2 emissions per kg of copper quoted by the International Copper Association (ICA).

We are offering Low-Carbon Copper & Recycled Copper to customers that value an efficient improvement supporting policies and fulfilling obligations for lowering their CO2 footprint.

The mines and smelters where our copper cathodes are produced achieve a lower CO2 footprint than the industry average due to higher efficiency and level of electrification, in combination with fossil free-energy sources.

The footprint has been calculated in accordance with the GHG Protocol Product Standard and ISO 14064-3 with support from Sphera. It has also been verified to comply with the GHG Protocol and reviewed according to the principles of ISO 14064-3 b y a third party, Intertek.

Our Low-carbon Copper & Recycled Copper cathodes are produced at Rönnskärsverken in Sweden and Harjavalta in Finland by Boliden.

When calculating the CO2 footprint, Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions have been included. All categories in the Greenhouse Gas Protocol with a relevant impact on the final carbon footprint from cradle-to-Elcowire gate are included.

By implementing Low-carbon Copper in products and solutions, significant steps towards lowered carbon footprints can be taken. Elcowire offers the product to various needs, from copper ingredient in small applications to main component in power transmission for large infrastructure projects.
