EverZinc has created a new business unit that will deliver zinc material for rechargeable batteries. The unit will be separate from its alkaline batteries business, noted the Belgium-based specialty zinc materials provider.
The new unit will supply battery makers with alloyed zinc power and zinc oxide made from special high-grade zinc. EverZinc also produces fine zinc powders and ultra-fine zinc oxide, which is used to make alkaline batteries. According to the company’s website, it supplies around a quarter of the zinc materials used in the global production of alkaline batteries.
