Procurement Resource Assessment of Zinc Production Process:
1. Zinc Production Process From Mining: This report consists of a detailed cost analysis of Zinc. Zinc's production includes several steps such as mining, roasting, leaching & purification, electrolysis, and melting & casting. Mining: Zinc in tiny amounts is present in the earth's crust which is collected and transported from mines across the globe. After that stage, trainloads of zinc concentrate go through a four-stage process: roasting, electrolysis, casting, leaching, and purifying. Roasting involves a fluid bed roaster which is fed with raw materials like recycled zinc oxides and zinc concentrate leftover from the steel industry. Using a roaster, calcine is formed by burning raw zinc minerals with air.
All through the process, full automation is used with continuous monitorisation. Next, in the Leaching & Purification step, leaching is done to dissolve the calcine generated in sulfuric acid. A pure zine sulphate solution is derived, which then undergoes the electrolysis process. In the electrolysis method, electrowinning is done to deposit zinc in the solution onto aluminium cathodes. The zinc sheets are split from cathodes and shifted to casting once the cathodes have been removed from the cell. During casting, cathode zine is turned into ingots and blocks after being melted in furnaces.
Further, electrolysis takes place where pure zinc is set on aluminium plates utilising voltage. This process is repeated. Lastly, the remelting of zinc and casting it into ingots, slabs, and blocks weighing within 25 and 2500 kg occurs, and other alloying ingredients are added while casting specific alloys.
Zinc (Zn) is a lustrous, blue-white metal from the periodic table's Group 12 and is classified as a chemical element. It is available abundantly in the planet's crust. It is found in air, water, and soil-derived and is used in several industrial activities like processing coal and steel, waste combustion, and mining. It is a low-melting transition metal with an atomic weight of 65.39 and an atomic number of 30. It has excellent strength, toughness, ductility, and conductivity.
The zinc industry is propelling forward owing to the application of the metal as a base metal for galvanising steel, preventing its corrosion. This galvanised steel finds application in various uses like for automobile parts, safety barriers, suspension bridges and streetlamp posts. In addition, high quantities of zinc are used in die-castings which is vital for downstream automobile, electrical and hardware sectors. Additionally, zinc oxide is used for making several products like paints, cosmetics, rubber, pharmaceuticals, plastics, soaps, electrical equipment, inks, batteries, and textiles, which is furthering the market demand. Also, as a pigment, it is used to add colour in paints or watercolours along with other applications like printing inks, plastics, and wallpaper, among others which are further boosting the industry's expansion.
