ZIA is embarking on a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for zircon sand, in the first instance with particular emphasis on ceramic tile applications.   This project will involve zircon sand producers representing in excess of 75% of global supply and will be undertaken by a team of thinkstep and Centro Ceramico Bologna, utilising thinkstep's considerable experience with LCA and Centro Ceramico's expertise in the ceramics sector.   The project is expected to be completed in mid 2017 and the results will be published.   If you would like to know more, get in touch via the contact form on this website.

Welcome to the Zircon Industry Association!

We hope that on these pages you will find all the information that you need about zircon and its derivatives.

ZIA is an independent industry association for the entire zircon value chain, from zircon sand produced by mining to wide range of downstream products, including zircon flour, opacifiers, refractory materials, fused zirconias and zirconium chemicals.

ZIA has as its principal objective, the promotion of the benefits and use of zircon and its derivatives as high quality, value-adding materials in a wide range of applications through product support, innovation, and research and market development.
