The hot-dip galvanized is an industrial process for protection of structures against corrosion; this process generates liquid effluents with high contents of zinc. It was made a literature review about thermodynamic - electrochemical analysis of the electrolytic methods for the recovery of zinc from such effluents so that sewage water possess the required zinc levels in the Colombian environmental regulations. In particular will discuss the efficiency of the electroflotation, the electrolytic refining and considers the conditions of the pollution generated by the galvanized and in some cases of similar industries. Similarly, aims to contextualize the reader to the importance, use and toxicity of elemental zinc or as molecular agent, with an emphasis on the regulations that govern the dumping and pollution by zinc in Colombia and the world.
