Environment and Climate
At Aurubis, production processes utilize state-of-the-art, energy-efficient plant technologies with very high environmental standards in order to conserve natural resources
Thanks to responsible and close cooperation with business partners and stakeholder groups, as well as participation in national and international committees, associations and projects, Aurubis contributes to improved environmental and resource protection beyond the company premises.
The individual production steps in our value chain are complex and very energy-intensive overall.

The continuously changing compositions of metallic and non-metallic materials in ore concentrates and recycling materials require constant adjustment of the process and plant technologies.
The use of our quality-monitored iron silicate products contributes to the protection of the environment, the climate, and natural resources.
The European REACH directive, which has been in effect since 2007, created a new framework for chemicals management. REACH stands for “Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals”.
