Next to that, we are one of the biggest recycler of residues from the galvanizing industry.

Some 40% of the zinc units processed by EverZinc come from secondary sources, EverZinc thereby aims to reduce energy and primary raw materials requirements and this, without jeopardizing the high quality standards of our products.

EverZinc is constantly in the market for the purchase of a range of suitable secondary raw materials to be used in one or the other of its plants located in Eijsden (NL), Zolder (B), Larvik(NO), and Pasir Gudang (MAL).
