Welcome to the
The 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 materials, fused zirconias and zirconium chemicals, metal and alloys.
Zircon is a versatile material and has various derivative forms.
ZIA completed the first ever global LCA for the use of zircon in the manufacture of ceramic tiles.
Zircon has unique properties, making it essential for a wide range of industrial and scientific applications.
Best practice guides for transporting zircon as a NORM.
ZIA aims to support members by providing guidance on best practice in the industry.
The handbook provides information on market statistics, uses and applications of zircon and emerging research and development.
Following a review of over 3,450 peer-reviewed papers published in 2018, the ZIA has identified the most popular areas of research.
Kuala Lumpur will be the destination for the next Zircon Industry Association (ZIA) annual conference on the 8th and 9th September 2020.
The Zircon Industry Association has published additional guidance on the transport of zircon as a NORM.
Comprehensive guide to the procedures and regulations involved in transporting zircon.
Zircon and its derivatives are used in countless every day products, most notably in the manufacture of ceramic tiles. They also have many other critical and unique uses across the global industrial sector. The role that zircon and its derivatives play in today’s world is far-reaching and because of its unique qualities and environmental credentials, its importance is still growing.
