With headquarters located in Monaca, PA, Horsehead Corporation's operation consists of a state-of-the-art solvent-extraction/electrowinning plant in Mooresboro, NC, a zinc powder facility in Palmerton, PA, and four recycling facilities located in Barnwell, SC, Calumet, IL, Rockwood, TN, and Palmerton, PA.
Our facilities process hundreds of thousands of tons per year of electric arc furnace (EAF) dust generated by the steel industry. EAF dust is a listed hazardous waste. It contains approximately 20% zinc from galvanized scrap melted by steel mini-mills. Horsehead's Waelz kiln technology has been designated by the U.S. EPA as the "Best Demonstrated Available Technology" for processing EAF dust.
