Zinc itself is one of the more environmentally friendly metals to cast. 40% of the zinc consumed worldwide comes from recycled or secondary zinc and this number is increasing every year. Zinc is also environmentally friendly because it takes significantly less energy to melt down than competing metals such as aluminum. Zinc melts at 800°F, whereas aluminum melts at 1200°F; so if you make a part out of aluminum, recycle it, and melt it down again, there’s an 800° difference between making and recycling the same part in zinc. Zinc is a natural part of the earth and an excellent casting material. It can be recycled infinitely without loss of properties and quality. Over 90% of collected zinc products are recycled.
