We are always striving to decrease energy consumption, and some of our sites are already achieving great success in this area. One important aspect of more sustainable energy use is also recovering more of the energy in our processes.
At our site in Helsingborg, Sweden, for example, we recover energy from exhaust gases in the shaft furnace we have used for the copper rod production for more than 20 years. The heat recovery is made from hot gas and then cleaned in a textile filter. In addition to heating our own factory, that heat
is distributed to the city of Helsingborg. This district heating network provides warmth to homes as well as enables cold water production for cooling processes.
