Alpha’s Altoona facility is the largest single electronic solder recycling site in North America, and it has received certification as a conflict-free minerals smelter by the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition, Incorporated (EICC) and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) Conflict-Free Smelter Audit Review Committee, as confirmed by a 3rd party compliance audit of its facility on November 11, 2013.  Alpha is an early adopter of the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI).

Alpha Conflict Free Tin SealAlpha understands the seriousness of the possibility that tin mined in conflict areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) may become part of the electronics supply chain.

Moreover, we understand that profits from such tin mining in conflict areas may be encouraging certain unfair labor practices or other human rights violations in the DRC.  We are committed to ensuring that minerals from conflict mines do not enter Alpha's supply chain.
