Who is Aurubis Belgium?
Aurubis Belgium is specialized in the production of the copper cathodes, rod, free of oxygen rod, bars and profiles.
They produce about 1 million ton of copper cathodes a year with a copper content of over 99.99 %. This primary product is processed into a broad range of products at Aurubis. The company offers many products that can be individually adjusted to customer needs.
What are they looking for?
The Belgium company is looking for ways to reduce the carbon footprint in their production of copper products. The reason being that their goal is to reduce scope 1 & 2 CO2 emissions by 50% in 2030 versus the reference year 2018 and to become carbon neutral by 2050.
Important factors to take into consideration are the European Green Deal, on the one hand, requiring Aurubis Belgium to decarbonize, and the Belgian nuclear exit, potentially leading to electricity shortages and high electricity prices, on the other hand.
Solutions are sought but not limited to:
• Replacement of CH4 with hydrogen
• Electrification of furnaces currently heated using natural gas
• Installation of solar panels on the roofs of our production buildings
• Installation of a heat network potentially combined with geothermal energy
• Carbon Capture Storage / Usage
