Zinc oxide facility

Hartford Steel Technologies plans to finalise a site for its proposed “Super Facilityâ€? in NW Ohio by the end of summer. This facility will include both dry-end and wet-end production. Through this two-stage process, HST will convert sludge/scale, electric arc furnace (EAF) dust, and fine coal into direct reduced iron (DRI) and crude zinc oxide. The DRI and crude zinc oxide is further processed into a purified form, salt, and other derivatives. Zinc oxide is utilized in the pharmaceutical and rubber industries. Currently, HST and Maumee Research & Engineering Incorporated (Northwood, Ohio) are operating a demonstration unit in Perrysburg, Ohio. Both companies are conducting engineering and refining the process at the Perrysburg location.
