Abstract:
This map and table comprise information on 124 world copper smelters (2 of which are closed and 1 of which is under development) and 4 (low-grade solvent extraction-electrowinning) operations whose product requires further processing to produce refined copper. The map shows the locations of facilities and a color code based on the capacity of the facilities. These data have been compiled from multiple sources and estimates, based upon production and other pertinent information. The data presented in this report can be used with data on annual copper production and on the environmental releases that characterize particular types of processes to estimate environmental residuals from copper production.
Purpose:
The purpose of this report is to present information about the copper smelters around the world concerning their location, ownership or operating company, operating status, capacity, and process type.
