Copper waste pipe to ABS Schluter Drain?


Hello All...I am currently renovating my basement bathroom and have purchased a Shcluter Shower System. My question is whether or not and how I would be able to connect the 2" ABS Kerdi drain supplied with the shower system, to the 1-1/2" copper waste pipe which is currently 1/2" above the finished concrete slab.

Someone please tell me there is a safe and easy way to connect the 2 materials without breaking up the existing concrete slab.

Thanks

I am assuming/hoping it is trapped. There is no access from beneath as the copper is embedded in the concrete slab. That being said The old shower was used regularly and we never experienced a problem with any type of smell coming through the drain.
