Report summary

The Akita zinc smelter was commissioned in 1953 with a capacity of 7kt/a. This was expanded to 100kt/a by 1973. However due to ongoing losses through the early 1990s the decision was made to close the smelter in 1996. However some alloying operations are still carried out on the site. This analysis was discontinued from 1997 onwards.
