Zinc is essential for the metabolism of all living organisms. It is also essential in applications as varied as automotive, construction, food industry, battery production, pharmaceutical industry... Zinc is most frequently used for its corrosion protection properties, through galvanization.
Due to its many applications, zinc is present everywhere in our cities and industries. Given the zinc content in its many wastes, recycling operations preserve all the physico-chemical properties of zinc and thus create a virtuous loop of circular economy.
By extracting zinc from dusts or waste, we make a sustainable contribution to the circular zinc economy, thereby preserving natural resources through the sustainable supply of zinc as a substitute for mining concentrates and limiting the consumption of fossil fuels required for their extraction.
