Electric Arc Furnace Dust (pigments)

Recupyl is majority stakeholder in a joint venture called Recupac, which recycles electric arc furnace dust (EAFD), a steel industry waste product containing primarily iron and zinc. Recupac has developed a patented recycling process to extract marketable iron and zinc compounds from EAFD using Recupyl's proven hydrometallurgical technology. The zinc and iron is recovered and the iron oxide is used to make industrial pigments.
