SOURCES OF POLLUTION IN COPPER INDUSTRY

2011-5-12  The electro-refined copper is melted and cast into wire bars. The copper wire bar is then rolled into wire rods and are pickled to remove the cop-per oxide dust. Therefore, it is evident that starting from mining operations to final finishing operation of copper production, all of them contribute as sources of pollution in the copper industry.
