Environment

Through our process, we’re helping to keep millions of tons of industrial waste out of landfills. We strive every day to find newer, better ways to recover valuable materials from this waste. We’ve processed over 12 million tons of EAF dust and produced more than 2.5 million tons of zinc product.

Our high-temperature rotary Waelz kiln technology is commercially proven and EPA recognized as the Best Demonstrated Available Technology.

Customers

Our customers are the lifeline of our ability to create a sustainable culture.  They provide the EAF dust that initiates the cycle of sustainability and typically engage in long-term mutual commitments with AZR.  AZR is committed to listening, proactively helping and keeping our word as a valued partner and supplier to our steel mill industry customers. AZR assists our customers by creatively solving problems and responding quickly to their needs.

Communities

We’re committed to the communities where we operate so that we can all thrive and find success together. To further our support, we seek out different partnerships, sponsorships, educational opportunities, and volunteer opportunities in each of our communities.

Safety

The health of our employees is of the utmost importance to us. Not only are they the reason behind a successful company, but they’re also behind successful communities. We have extensive training programs and encourage our employees to bring any safety issues to facility leadership attention immediately.
