Environmental aspects of electrolytical Zink plating
I need to write a paper on the environmental aspects of electrolytical Zink plating... Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a lot of information about that on the internet (not even on the EPA homepage!), does anybody know a good source on the web (or any books on that topic)? Thanks in advance....Sladjan Simic

You will find little about "Zink" because sometimes the search engines are dumb. But if you use the U.S. English spelling of "zinc", you'll find plenty!
I typed 'zinc electroplating environmental' at www.google.com and immediately was virtually drowned in an endless ocean of those silly reports about "environmental accounting" that have made so many plating shops poor and so many "non-profits" rich .

To narrow your search look for; cyanide plating, low cyanide, acid, neutral zinc plating.
I think cyanide is old hat, but you should get some distance out of explaining why.
Also zinc plating is often chromated with Chromium VI, which is simple and effective but not environmentally friendly. IanIan Brooke
