This publication looks into the intriguing world of copper and reveals how one of the world’s most reusable resource plays a vital role in enabling many aspects of our lives.
ECI’s plan identifies strategies for seven copper-based technologies that could deliver substantial carbon reductions in the downstream industrial, residential and service sectors. Fully implemented, the plan could reduce EU CO2 emissions by 25%, or 1,100 million tonnes per year, by 2050, versus 2011 levels.

Copper alloy mesh aquaculture cages improve the sanitary conditions, productivity and sustainability of operations for farmers raising salmon, trout, sea bream, sea bass, cod, cobia, yellow tail and other species
The aim of this publication is to provide engineers with an appreciation of copper alloys commonly used in marine applications. It will provide an overview of the range of alloys and their properties, and give references and sources for further information.
In 2012, the International Maritime Organization (IMO), adopted resolution MEPC 219(63). This establishes the hazard classification criteria for solid substances, transported as bulk cargo, to be considered as “harmful to the marine environment” (HME) for the purposes of restricting the disposal of solid bulk cargo residues under the amended Annex V of the MARPOL Convention.
Copper concentrates are solid mining products transported in bulk. The need for classifications of these materials, for the human health and environmental hazard categories set out in the HME criteria, was assessed following the UN-GHS 4th revision and the ICMM guidance (2013)1 on HME assessment of ores and concentrates.
The results are summarised in this report.
