Boliden Kokkola earns Zinc Mark, Copper Mark

Boliden’s Kokkola smelter in Finland has new certifications to pin to its board: receipt of the Zinc Mark and the Copper Mark from the Copper Mark organization.

Kokkola, Europe’s second-largest zinc plant, is one of the first zinc smelters in the world to receive the Zinc Mark.

“The Zinc Mark certificate proves that we are a world-class zinc smelter, and that we truly strive to improve our processes to achieve a better and more sustainable future for everyone,” said Kristina Tyynelä, Boliden Kokkola quality manager.

Kokkola is the second Boliden site to receive the Zinc Mark, and the third to collect the Copper Mark. Earlier this year, Boliden Rönnskär and Boliden Harjavalta both received the Copper Mark, with Rönnskär also getting the Zinc Mark and Harjavalta gaining the Nickel Mark.
