The starting lot is 10,000 tons of clinker. This number was loaded into 160 wagons. The processing is planned to be carried out in the Urals. Another 10,000 tons of clinker Electrozinc plans to ship to copper smelting facilities of UMMC. The company also has the necessary capacity. If the needs of the partners are growing, Electrozinc is ready to increase annual supplies. Their volume can be about 50,000 tons.
