Technology

Malleable, ductile—and an excellent conductor of heat and electricity—copper has been used by mankind for thousands of years. Another very important characteristic of copper is that it can be recycled over and over again without losing its essential physical properties.

We use state-of-the-art technology to refine all types of processed copper and to produce Cu-FRHC (furnace-refined, high-conductivity) products that are 99.9 percent pure and meet American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) B-49 standards.

At full production capacity, we have the ability to refine 180 million pounds of copper annually.

Because SDI La Farga uses secondary copper to make new copper products, our production process has a significantly lower impact on the environment, diminishing the carbon footprint we leave behind. Our process isn’t just environmentally friendly—it’s environmentally responsible.
