With headquarters located in Monaca, PA, Horsehead Corporation's operation consists of a multi-product manufacturing plant in Monaca, PA, a metal powder facility in Palmerton, PA, a hydrometallurgical metals recovery facility in Bartlesville, OK, and four recycling facilities located in Beaumont, TX, 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.
