CAgroup has supplied anodes to projects in Australia, Chile, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, DRC, the Philippines, Peru, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Belgium, to name a few. With over 95% of our anode output exported around the world, CAgroup is recognised as a world-class supplier to the global electrorefining and electrowinning industry (copper, nickel, zinc and other metalliferous processing plants).
Our clients include leading miners such as BHP, Glencore, Nyrstar, KAZ Minerals and MMG who continue to place repeat business with CAgroup on the basis of the quality and performance of our anodes.
Investment in R&D
With world-class rolling and fabrication processes located in Melbourne, Australia and a commitment to ongoing investment in R&D, CAgroup has earned a reputation for producing anodes of exceptional quality, performance and durability.
In early 2015, CAgroup put in place an ambitious 10-year plan to progressively upgrade and automate its entire manufacturing process from rolling and TMCR upgrades through to most recent investments in robotic TIG welding, robotic blade profiling and anode blasting. Our ongoing commitment to investing in R&D, guarantees that CAgroup’s anode manufacturing facilities are world-class and capable of producing anodes at the lowest feasible cost.
Commitment to ESG
CAgroup is committed to protecting the environment and pursuing the highest standard of environmental management throughout its operations.
Our manufacturing site is EPA-licensed, and the business aims to exceed all regulatory requirements. CAgroup is also registered as an Approved Arrangements site with the Australian Government’s Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, allowing us to import spent anodes for recycling.
Used Anode Recycling/ Repurchasing
As part of our commitment to the environment, CAgroup can purchase back spent anodes from clients, which will be returned to our facility, broken down and recycled in a fully audited and environmentally safe manner. Upon arrival at our facility, used lead anodes for Cu EW are recycled into lower-grade products, whereas lead anodes for Zn EW can be used in the manufacturing process of new anodes if requested by the client.
This practice ensures anodes are constantly repurposed, with minimum waste and/or impact to the environment.
