Copperstone on the Swedish market
Increasing copper demand puts Viscaria on the world map.
In Sweden, 0.1 million tons of copper are produced per year. This corresponds to 0.52 percent of the world’s entire copper production. Aitik is the largest copper-producing mine with 90,000 tons of copper per year.
With its expected annual production of 30,000 tonnes, Viscaria becomes Sweden’s second largest producer, with a significant role in the European market.
Demand for locally and responsibly produced copper is expected to increase in line with continued electrification. In the industry, major investments are underway for battery production and fossil-free produced metals – factors that favor Viscaria’s role in the market.
