H.C. Starck tantalum processing once again certified conflict-free
- EICC grants certificate for the sixth time in a row
- Still valid for all locations
- Processing of exclusively conflict-free raw materials a key element of the H.C. Starck strategy
Munich, January 26, 2017. H.C. Starck, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of technology metals and advanced ceramics, has once again received certification for processing of “conflict-free” tantalum raw materials – the sixth year in a row the company has done so. Unlike in past years, the adjustment of the structures under corporate law meant that this year’s audit included the newly founded subsidiary H.C. Starck Tantalum and Niobium GmbH and the associated company H.C. Starck Smelting GmbH & Co. KG. This means all subsidiaries that process tantalum at the Goslar, Mito, Tokyo, Map Ta Phut, and Laufenburg locations remain certified. The audit was performed by the independent company SGS, acting on behalf of the Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) as part of the Conflict Free Smelter Program (CFSP).More
