Aurubis produces high-purity, high-quality copper from copper concentrates and recycling materials and processes it into intermediate products. Copper scrap and a variety of other recycling materials are reintroduced to the economic cycle this way.
We produce more than 1 million t of marketable copper cathodes each year. They are processed in the Group into continuous cast rod, specialty wire, shapes, rolled products, strip and profiles made of copper and copper alloys. In addition, we produce precious metals such as gold and silver and a range of other products, for example sulfuric acid and iron silicate, as by-products of copper production.
We develop our leading market position with a responsible approach to the environment, people and resources.
