Paper Title:
Recovery of Zinc from the Final Slag of Steel's Galvanizing Process
  Abstract

With the rising cost of zinc reaching historic levels, more emphasis is being placed on technologies to increase the efficient utilization of zinc. One area targeted for increased efficiency is in-house recycling of metallic zinc industrial wastes. The largest consumer of zinc is the hot-dip galvanizing of steel. Large amount of zinc slag containing more than 50% zinc, are accumulated during galvanization processes at the surface of molten zinc bath and is usually skimmed manually. At First, The pyrometallurgical recovery of zinc from slag samples was carried out, and parameters affecting recovery processes such as time, temperature, and flux percentage were studied. The results obtained revealed that zinc metal is successfully recovered from these secondary resources. The recovery efficiency is 70% for zinc waste materials having a particle size diameter of + 1.25 mm. An optimum percentage of 25% weight of ammonium chloride fluxing agent was obtained. The optimum temperature for the recovery process was 700°C.
