Zinc recycling rates
Given the market value of zinc, industrial companies have endeavoured to constantly improve recovery methods – to collect the zinc found in products that have reached the end of their life cycle. Indeed, zinc can be indefinitely recycled, without ever losing its properties or quality.
About 60% of all zinc produced worldwide is drawn from minerals, and the rest stems from the recycling industry. The recycling rate depends greatly on zinc waste recovery, and over 90% of these products are indeed collected and recycled.
