He added that this month they reached 100 per cent time utilization of the smelter, so yesterday they produced 263 tons of anode copper and a thousand tons of sulfuric acid.
According to him, this means that the new pyro-metallurgical aggregates have achieved and reached the designed capacity.
“All deficiencies in the operation are completely eliminated, so the emissions of sulfur dioxide are far below the permissible limits,” said Spaskovski.
