Fertilizers

ZINC IN FERTILIZERS: ESSENTIAL FOR CROPS; ESSENTIAL FOR LIFE
A brochure highlighting the importance of zinc fertilizers in correcting zinc deficiency in soils and crops with the objective of increasing crop quality and yield and getting more zinc into people’s diets. It is estimated that one third of the world’s population is zinc deficient, resulting in numerous health problems including poor immune response which may lead to high mortality rates especially among small children. For millions of people a few extra milligrams of zinc each day can make a difference between illness or death and a healthy, productive life.

Sustainability

ZINC…A SUSTAINABLE MATERIAL
Increasingly the zinc industry is being asked to provide information to downstream users of zinc and zinc containing products on the environmental footprint of the materials it produces. Material specifiers and product engineers in key end use markets, such as building, construction and transportation, are more and more interested in selecting materials that have the best environmental profile while meeting traditional cost, quality and technical performance criteria.
