ZINC'S VALUE PROPOSITION
The transportation sector is one of the largest contributors to anthropogenic U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Automobiles made with high-strength, light-weight galvanized steel offer significant fuel and emission savings. Compared to aluminum, galvanized steel autobodies are stronger, more formable, sustainable and significantly less expensive. Because of this, virtually all automakers have adopted galvanized steel for their high-volume production internal combustion, hybrid and electric vehicle models. Market growth in this sector is being driven by innovative new high-strength galvanized steels that deliver the mass reduction automakers need, along with increase use of galvanized steel in auto manufacture in developing countries.
