Zinc is the fourth most used metal which is an essential resource in renewable energy, vehicles, and infrastructure. Its main uses are protecting steel and manufacturing bronze and brass. Recycling zinc is critical for preserving this resource for future generations.
Zinc dusts are a by-product of recycling galvanized steel. These dusts are the largest feedstock for the zinc recycling industry.
Unlike the most recycled metals, recycled zinc has a larger CO2e footprint than if it was mined. Zincovery is building an alternative to the current carbon intensive zinc recycling process
Zincovery utilises a novel low temperature furnace technology to break zinc ferrite compounds into digestible zinc. The zinc dust is then leached allowing for subsequent recovery with electrowinning. The undissolved sand may be used within the cement industry.
When compared to conventional recycling process.
Zinc produced entirely from secondary material
> 99.995% once at commercial scale
We are currently building a pilot plant, and taking expressions of interest for practicing the technology at small commercial demonstration scale.
