Budel EN GB


Nyrstar’s Budel smelter produces zinc and zinc alloys. The advantage of the Budel smelter is its very high zinc recovery rate as a result of circuit design and feedstocks. Budel’s feedstock from Nyrstar primarily consists of high grade sulphide concentrates, zinc oxides and other secondary feeds. Budel’s two key products are SHG and zinc galvanizing alloys.

In addition, the site produces cadmium, copper and cobalt cake, sulphuric acid and Budel Leach Product that contains lead and precious metals and is used as a raw material by secondary smelters. Nyrstar Budel is a highly energy efficient smelter and operates a state of the art water treatment plant which supports keeping its environmental footprint to a minimum.
