HOT-DIP GALVANISING 2035
As the importance for green production is increasing, Rotocoat is collaborating with Zinkinfo Benelux (ZIB) in developing a blueprint for the 2035 galvanising plant using green hydrogen.
ELECTRIC ZINC FURNACE
Prestia has the largest zinc kettle in France, which is equipped with an electric furnace.
We look forward to the collaboration between Rotocoat and Prestia in finding new innovative ways of reducing the use of energy and thus the reduction of CO2 emissions.

REDUCTION OF TOC EMISSIONS
At present, Rezinal, the largest CO2 producer in our Family Group, focusses on reducing CO2 in the zinc recycling production. Although the CO2 production has risen due to increased production, it is good to emphasize that the CO2 burden for the production of recycled zinc is approximately 10 times lower than for the production of primary zinc. In the coming year, Rezinal will invest in reducing TOC (Total Organic Carbon) emissions on the Coreco (waste zinc) furnace.
SHEEP FOR SUSTAINABLE LAND MANAGEMENT
Looking for a sustainable alternative to maintain a wasteland of approximately one hectare, Rezinal has enlisted the help of a pack of sheep. After grazing, different types of heather, an ideal plant for this soil, will be spread. To this end, Rezinal works together with VZW Kemp, an organisation that is committed to preserving and restoring the diversity of plants and animals, with an eye for culture and history. For this project, VZW Kemp also engages groups with a disadvantage to the labour market.
