Aviseo studied the economic impact of Horne Smelter and CCR Refinery, the only facilities of their kind in Canada. Horne Smelter and the CCR Refinery are economically linked, as all of the smelter’s production becomes refinery production inputs. This integration allows the facilities to compete with major global players. The smelter contributes significantly to the economic stability of the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region, accounting for 4.3% of the GDP and 1.8% of jobs. With its wide network of suppliers, it also has significant provincial and Canadian-wide impacts. The company is an active participant in the circular economy, particularly through its recycling initiatives for old electronic devices.
