Information @ Glance


  • Zinc is the 27th most common element in the earth's crust. More importantly, zinc is fully recyclable. Zinc can be recycled
    indefinitely - without loss of its physical or chemical properties.
  • Zinc is recycled at all stages of production and use, including scrap that arises during the production of galvanized steel sheet, scrap generated during manufacturing and installation processes and from end-of-life products.
  • Zinc sheet has a number of attributes that make it desirable for a range of applications. It is durable; for example, roofs made from zinc sheet can last for centuries. It is 100% recyclable, and for major applications such as roofing and wall claddings, the recycling rate reaches 95%.
  • Zinc can be recycled infinitely without loss of properties and quality. While the recycling rate of zinc depends mainly on the collection rate of zinc-containing products at their end of life, over 90% of these collected products are recycled.


  • Zinc, with its key attributes of essentiality, durability and recyclability, is well positioned as a material of choice for a sustainable society.
  • Zinc products can be recycled, and zinc content can be recovered without loss of properties or quality.
  • Zinc in low concentrations is generally considered to be nontoxic.
  • Inherent characteristics of zinc – natural, essential, durable, recyclable – make it a desirable material for a range of applications in transportation, infrastructure, consumer products and food production. Because of zinc’s durability and recyclability, zinc can help save natural resources and improve sustainability performance.


  • Approximately 60% of the zinc produced worldwide originates from mined ores and the remaining 40% from recycled or secondary zinc. The level of recycling increases each year, in step with progress in zinc production and recycling technology.
  • Many zinc products have a long, useful life, typical recycling indicators are difficult to apply. IZA has developed a Zinc Industry Recycling Rates Calculator (ZIRRC) to allow efficient calculation of zinc recycling rates by end-use application and/or sector.
  • Today, over 30% of the zinc used in the world comes from recycled materials, and this percentage is expected to increase.
  • Current annual zinc metal production is around 11 million metric tons, of which about 70 percent comes from mines and the other 30 percent from recycling.
