HORNE SMELTER

The Noranda Converter (CvN)

Developing and implementing the CvN were major steps forward in maintaining Horne Smelter’s competitive position in the custom smelter market, while improving operational flexibility and environmental performance. Over the last 22 years of the vessel’s operation, 96% sulfur fixation has been achieved. By showing such significant operational performance, the CvN has certainly been a key component of the Horne Smelter process, making it the only smelter still operating in Canada today.
