The refinery uses the company's ISA PROCESS technology.

The copper refinery became operational in July 1959 with an annual capacity of 40,000 tonnes. Over its 47 years of operation, the capacity has progressively expanded to its current capacity of 300,000 tonnes. In the late 1970s, the ISA Process technology was developed at the refinery. This technology is now licensed to 66 refineries worldwide.
