    Abstract:

    The Copper Smelting Industry has transitioned into the new millennium compliant with environmental regulations, new smelter installations, and brown field expansions.
    The industry faces new challenges to achieve economies of scale for maximizing copper throughput as copper in concentrate grades have decreased while contained impurities have increased.
    This paper compares Double Flash, TSL, Mitsubishi, and Bottom Blown smelting technology flexibility to process current grades of concentrate in the custom market.
