Report summary

The Cartagena (Escombreras) zinc smelter project was part of a recovery plan put in place for the then existing Cartagena smelter owned by Españoladel Zinc. The project involved the construction of a new smelter to operate by entirely treating secondary materials from steel recycling plants. It was proposed to commission in late 2011 with a production capacity of 65kt/a but Españoladel Zinc was declared insolvent the year before.
