Life Cycle Assessment of Zircon Sand

This first ever cradle-to-gate zircon sand LCA is now available plus a comparison study with alumina as an opacifier

Dedicated to those involved in the production, transformation and use of zircon and zircon-based materials

Zircon Industry Association (ZIA) is an independent industry association for the entire zirconium value chain: from zircon sand produced by mining and beneficiation to a wide range of downstream products, including zircon flour, opacifiers, refractory and foundry materials, fused zirconia and zirconium chemicals, Zr metal and alloys.

ZIA's mission is to represent and support the interests of the various value chains. The association will achieves this by educating and informing governments, industry bodies and other key stakeholders on the uses and benefits of zircon and its derivatives – including in the context of emerging regulatory challenges and industry-wide technical issues.

Here you will find all the information that you need about zircon and its derivatives. If you can’t find what you are looking for, please contact us.
