Zinc and Copper needed


We are located close to Atlanta Georgia. We use several thousand tons of zinc and copper per year. We use carbonates, sulfates, oxides, etc. Please send all ideas to our e-mail. We will actively investigate all materials and respond to all inquiries.

Thank you,

Ed. note: Sorry, this RFQ for private contact is now outdated, but public technical replies are still welcome. No public brand/source suggestions please ( huh? why?)

Ed. note: We have been assured by Mr. Munoz that if there were a transaction, his company would pay for the product 100% of the time (in other words, they are not a treatment facility that would ever charge for disposal).

Q. We produce around 15 tons annually of a filtercake that transports as residual waste and is about 4% zinc and would examine any opportunity to supply it for beneficial reuse.

A. Hi James. It's fine to keep your eyes open to any such opportunity, but don't waste too much of your time on it. I've never heard of a single zinc plating shop which didn't have to pay for the disposal of their zinc waste.
