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


Establishment of battery factory in Skellefteå

In total, the investment is expected to cost over SEK 40 billion and provide up to 2,500 direct jobs.

”Our mission is to build the greenest battery in the world with a minimal carbon footprint and the highest ambitions for recycling to enable the European transition.”

Optronic AB in Skellefteå is focused on series production on manufacturing products containing electronics or optical measurement technology. We specialize in the production of small and medium-sized series for industrial customers. Our facilities comprise approximately 3,000 square meters of manufacturing equipment adapted to the most demanding industrial segments. Some of the industries we have experience include automation, logistics, medical technology, security, traffic solutions and the agricultural sector
