Swedish mining and smelting company Boliden has taken a significant step toward a greener future with the launch of Low-Carbon Sulphuric Acid. The new product increases Boliden’s collection of low-carbon offerings, joining the likes of Low-Carbon Zinc, Recycled Zinc, Low-Carbon Copper, and Recycled Copper within the Green Transition Metals portfolio.

Sven Hjelmstedt, Director Sales at Boliden emphasizes the impact of this addition, saying, “Our long-term work with sustainability empowers Boliden and our clients to create products with significantly lower carbon footprints. We support our clients’ sustainability goals and support them in reducing their Scope 3 emissions, contributing to an improved environmental performance for their industries.”

Low-Carbon Sulphuric Acid showcases Boliden’s strong commitment to sustainability. It has a minimal carbon footprint, measuring less than 25 kg of CO2 per ton—well below the EU average. What sets Boliden apart is that the company produces sulphuric acid from the same raw materials used to produce metals using a green energy mix, making it highly resource and CO₂ efficient. Compared to the majority of global sulphuric acid production, which mainly relies on raw materials from oil refining.

“For clients, the benefits are twofold. Low-Carbon Sulphuric Acid helps reduce their carbon footprints while providing a sustainable product independent of fossil fuels. This is particularly valuable for industries reliant on sulphuric acid such as the global fertilizer and wood-based product industries,” Sven Hjelmstedt at Boliden concludes.
