The problem of zinc production from secondary sources is not yet solved despite a lot of different alternatives were presented and some of them are under evaluation. The environmental pressure and the new concept of circular economy is asking for viable solutions for waste or secondary material.
The EZINEX® Process is not a new technology but, industrially applied to EAF in the last decade of the last century and dormant for a long time, is newly generating some interest.
Engitec started revising the old process and found and applied some modifications in order to revitalize it submitting each unit to a revision work finalized to optimize the process and to the eliminate the problems we have got in the above mentioned industrial plant experience.
This new solutions were tested during an extensive work done in a demo plant. The revised process is more flexible and easy to run.
