Circular economy: zinc recycling to preserve natural resources
The REAZN Group is continuously working at the optimization of its zinc
recycling technologies in the context of its prime grade zinc alloy
production. The European group improves the recovery rate of zinc units
and saves valuable raw materials from the waste stream.
Zinc: 100 % recyclable
REAZN strongly believes that zinc is one of the most suitable materials for an upcycling
recovery stream. In this way REAZN helps to save natural resources and to lower the carbon
footprint for the whole industry. REAZN keeps on investing in better recycling processes
and technologies and is committed to reduce its CO2 emissions. By doing so, REAZN
wants to change the perception of secondary material and to promote the concept of zinc
REAZN: RECYCLING, RELIABILITY AND ZINC
The REAZN Group is going to celebrate its 1st birthday on 18 February 2021. One year ago,
four brands were unified to further strengthen the position in their core zinc alloy business:
• REAZN Belgium NV (previously NFM Cramet NV),
• REAZN SA (previously NFM Alloyz),
• REAZN UK Ltd (previously The Brock Metal Company Ltd),
• REAZN+ BV (previously ISTC BVBA).
In 1988 REAZN Belgium started the production of zinc alloys in Gent, already focusing on
secondary zinc units. REAZN SA was founded in the year 1994 in Luxembourg.
The company is responsible for the procurement of raw materials, logistic processes
& sales. REAZN UK originates from the Brock Metal Company. Its factory is located
near Wolverhampton and was established in 1949. Last, REAZN+ complements REAZN
Belgium for the processing of complex secondary raw materials on the Belgian site.
Sustainable manufacturing process
Today, REAZN produces 95.000 tons of zinc alloys per year, offering casting and customized
galvanizing alloys. The company offers a logistical service to their customers providing
bins for collection of the materials to be recycled. Another objective is to recover zinc
units from post-consumer goods. It also partly prevents the disposal of demolition and
household waste. Furthermore, every by-product of REAZN´s recycling process can be
used as raw material in other industrial applications.
