Procurement Resource Assessment of Zinc Production Process:

  1. Zinc Production From Mining: This report consists of a detailed cost analysis of zinc. Zinc production consists of several steps: mining, roasting, leaching & purification, electrolysis, and melting & casting.
  • Mining:

Firstly, zinc is mined from the planet’s crust and goes through many steps like electrolysis, casting, leaching, and purifying.

  • Roasting: In a fluid bed roaster, the raw materials are fed, including zinc concentrate derived from the steel industry and recycled zinc oxides.
    Calcine is made in a roaster when raw zinc minerals are burned with air. Calcine, with a temperature of 950 degrees Celsius, appears to be sand-like.
  • Leaching & Purification:

The Leaching method is employed for dissolving the generated calcine in sulfuric acid. Next, the zinc sulphate solution goes through an electrolysis process.

  • Electrolysis:

Under electrolysis, a process called electrowinning is used for depositing zinc present in the solution onto aluminium cathodes. Next, an electric current is employed to carry this out using cathodes and anodes.

Later, the zinc sheets are split from the cathodes and moved to casting as soon as the cathodes are taken out from the cells. In casting, cathode zine is turned into ingots and blocks after melting in furnaces.

Then, pure zinc is placed on aluminium plates by employing high voltage. These plates are then extracted from the cells and comprise just pure zinc. Using machines, the zinc is removed, and the empty plates are returned to the cells, where the process is repeated all over again.

  • Melting & Casting:

During the last phase, zinc is remelted and cast into ingots, slabs, and blocks weighing between 25 and 2500 kg.

Product Definition:

Zinc (Zn) is a silvery-white metal with a blue tinge. It is corrosive in nature and corrodes when in contact with air. It is a trace mineral meaning that it is only required in small amounts by the body. It is a chemical element with a low melting point belonging to the Group 12 of the periodic table. It is widely used to make metals and is of high commercial value.

Market Drivers:

The zinc market is advancing owing to its growing application in industrial, official and residential sectors. The major application of the product is due to the rising use of steel alloys, where the primary component is zinc metal. Furthermore, the rising construction of and infrastructure sector is triggering the market demand for zinc leading to the market’s expansion.
