Boliden’s new facility increase Rönnskär’s electronics recycling capacity to 120,000 tonnes per year. The expansion project started in 2010 and the smelting of electronic material in the new facilities began as planned in January 2012. The investment is in line with Boliden’s view of metals’ eco-cycle in a sustainable society. By increasing Rönnskär’s capacity, Boliden is helping ensure that more electronic scrap is recycled, rather than being sent to landfills.
“Boliden Rönnskär has for many years been a technological leader in the field of recycling electronics. This expansion takes advantage of our extensive experience in recycling electronics and enhances our competitive position in a growing market,” says Roger Sundqvist, General Manager at Rönnskär.
