The Zinc Expert Committee is a platform which offers information concerning the latest developments and activities in zinc primary metallurgy, recycling and further processing of zinc for the industry, universities and research centres.

The main focus lies on:

  • Zinc hydrometallurgy
  • Recycling of zinc bearing residues (e.g. EAFD)
  • Production of zinc oxide and zinc dust
  • Upcoming process technologies

At annual meetings, these topics in particular are presented and discussed combined with visits to companies working in these areas throughout Europe. With destinations such as Spain, Belgium, Italy, Germany etc. in recent years, combined with an international membership and participation, the Zinc experts' meeting aims to underline its international focus.

The next meeting is scheduled for October 2018. Details will be announced soon.
