Abstract [en]

The modern art of metal production engages a broad range of disciplines and knowledge: metallurgy and technology, environment, health and safety, economics and juris prudence, personnel and politicians, in short, a good example of modern industrial management. A historical perspective will be used to outline the author's vision. Boliden operates two smelters in Sweden as part of its integrated mining, smelting, refining and recycling business. Boliden's history includes births, learning, first love, tough decisions, and a recent marriage! The learning curve for the Rönnskär smelter just passed its 75th birthday. It well illustrates the everlasting efforts of our industries to stay on-line with the global industrial learning curve. As part of the society we live and operate in, we fulfil the task of a supplier of metals that man needs. As corporate citizens we also dare to express our concerns if things go wrong, be it in politics or in environmental matters. As the employer of choice we have to create a living organization attracting young operators and engineers as well. As a producer we have to act for the responsible use and recycling of our products. As wisdom comes of age but is about the future, challenges to be turned into opportunities will be forwarded - and hopefully discussed.
