THAILAND – SOUTH EAST ASIA
Thailand produces about 5.5 million tonnes of steel, all of which is from electric arc furnaces. This generates almost 90,000 tonnes per annum of EAFD, most of which is being sent for disposal in cement kilns or landfill. The average zinc grade is about 26%.
ZincOx is planning to build a plant with the capacity to process 100,000 tpy of EAFD and with the facility to upgrade the zinc oxide concentrate (HZO) and hot briquetted iron (ZHBI).
