Advancing towards circular economy and carbon neutrality

 

Wieland underlines its commitment to sustainability and carbon neutrality with the establishment of a Recycling and Refining Center in North America.

 

Using the latest and most efficient technology, the new site will leverage the infinite recyclability of copper and serve as both a hub for closed-loop recycling, as well as a refining center for third-party scrap.  It underlines Wieland’s commitment to sustainability, while acknowledging the growing demand for high-recycled content metal from our customers and the end consumers.
