History and activity

Opes Group

An expert in the field of copper recycling

Opes Group was founded in 2015. In the beginning, the company dealt with a wide range of non-ferrous scrap metal. Over time, it has concentrated on the copper recycling industry.

At the moment, the company’s operations focus on acquisition of raw materials – electric cable scrap. Purchased materials are delivered to specialised metal recovery plants, where crushing and separation processes produce copper granulates and PVC recyclate.

The company develops partnerships with its suppliers and recipients in Europe, America and Asia.

Opes Group follows the idea of Urban Mining. UM, or urban mining, is the process of recovering raw materials from used products, installations, infrastructural facilities and a wide range of waste. Recycling makes it possible to reuse all these materials and to save some of the world’s natural resources.

While selecting its means of transport, Opes Group makes every effort to limit so-called carbon footprint, e. g. by using intermodal transport.


Perspectives for the copper industry

Recycling as the pillar of development

Recycling and waste management are important elements of the supply chain

The non-ferrous metals industry, and especially copper thermal metallurgy, perceives recycling as one of the pillars of its strategic development. This approach results, on the one hand, from the expected more than threefold increase in demand for cooper and, on the other hand, from the significantly higher energy efficiency of recycling as compared to smelting metal from ore.

Opes Group has no intention to slow down.

The sustainable foundations for development built by our company enable us to make and implement plans of dynamic growth. The expansion of our network of partnerships into new continents, initiating the improvement of the technology for separation of copper granules and PVC recyclates in order to expand the possibility of their reuse, and, thanks to the symbiosis of ecology and business, constantly increasing the positive impact of the company on the environment.
