UrBC, Yekaterinburg, April 13, 2017. Russian Copper Company’s Kyshtym Copper Electrolysis Plant’s (KMEZ) copper-smelting department made 38,900,000 kg of anodes in the first quarter of 2017, providing anodes and copper powder for all of the plant’s copper electrolysis departments, Russian Copper Company’s press service reports.

‘This is the first time the plant’s copper-smelting department has produced so much in the course of one month,’ the press service says.

KMEZ’s copper electrolysis department made 31,915,300 kg of copper cathodes in the first quarter of the year. Thanks to an uninterrupted supply of anodes and the workers’ unified efforts, the production record of Q1’16 was reached once again.
