Tracemet expert webinar

18 March 2021

What did TraceMet come up with?

– Welcome to the webinar March 18

The TraceMet project has now reached its end after 14 months of intensive work. Do you want to take part in the results and the possibility of introducing a traceability system for metals? Welcome to the expert webinar March 18!

The origin of metals in products is playing an increasing role for both consumers and producers. Therefore, Svemin and Swedish Mining Innovation took the initiative for the TraceMet project.

TraceMet has developed a system for calculating the climate footprint and proportion of recycled metal for iron and copper, all the way from mine to end product. The system contains an IT solution that keeps track of how the metal’s environmental performance changes when it is further refined by players throughout the value chain.

Thanks to the administrative instructions in the system, the metal can be certified by an independent party. In the long run, this could be the basis for a certification system for responsible value chains in the metal industry.

Industrial parties from the entire chain have participated in the work: the Boliden and LKAB mines, the processors Elektrokoppar and SSAB and the end users ABB, Scania and Volvo Group.

The pilot study is now complete and work is underway to collect the results in a popular science final report that will be presented at the webinar.
