More strategic metals for Europe: Aurubis commissions modernized tankhouse in Lünen

After a successful three years of construction, we are delighted to celebrate the relaunch of the completely overhauled tankhouse for copper production at our Aurubis Lünen recycling site.

⬆️ This € 60 million investment ensures that the tankhouse is ready for the coming decades, enabling us to supply Europe with more strategic metals.

♻️ At Aurubis, we already process more than 1.1 million tons of recycled material today. Around 45 per cent of our copper cathodes are produced from recycled materials. Without recycling, we would not be able to meet the increasing demand for raw materials. And above all: Without recycling and the circular economy, we would not be able to achieve our climate goals!

🏭 That is why Aurubis consistently invests in its existing smelters in Europe and in Germany. We want to further strengthen Europe and Germany as hubs of industry and create local, secure, and attractive jobs.
