Rönnskärsverken in Skelleftehamn, Skellefteå municipality is Sweden’s sole smelter for the production of base metals, and is working on recycling of electronic scrap.
The main products are copper, zinc clones, lead and precious metals with sulfuric acid as a by-product.
Rönnskär also produces metals from electronic scap and othe secondary materials. The smelting plant produced 190,000 tonnes of copper in 2010.
In 2010, and expansion of approximately SEK 1,3 billion was made by Rönnskärsverken, which made the smelter world-leading in the recycling of electronic waste with a capacity of 120,000 tonnes of electronic scap per year
