Integrated facility at Dahej in the Bharuch district of
The unit has the unique distinction of being the largest copper smelter in the world at a single location with a 500,000 tpa capacity
The facilities comprise copper smelters, captive power plants, utilities and a captive jetty.
The company's copper product range includes copper cathodes and continuous cast copper rods. Birla Copper also produces precious metals, sulphuric acid, phosphoric acid, di-ammonium phospate (DAP) and other phosphoric fertilisers, and phospho gypsum.
International quality standards. Their excellent surface finish makes them suitable for processing to enamelled, coated and plated wires. They are available in diameters of 8, 11, 12.5, 16 and 19 mm.
The homogeneous structure and fine grain size of the continuous cast copper rod result in outstanding drawability. It can be drawn to an ultra-fine wire at a high yield rate.
The Birla Copper rod is considered suitable for power and communication cables, strips for power and distribution for transformers, magnet wires, and zari manufacturing. Larger diameter rods — 11, 12.5 and 16 mm — are used to produce profiles and busbars.
Birla Copper is the only manufacturer of the 19-mm-diameter copper rod in India. This rod is used for groove conductors and profiles.

Precious metals are extracted at our precious metals refinery located at Dahej. Gold and silver have an affinity to copper ore and are found in certain quantities in the concentrate supplies.
The precious metals are extracted after copper refining to produce 99.9 per cent pure gold, silver and selenium. The residue contains traces of platinum and palladium, which are sold as platinum group metal mix, commonly known as PGM.
