Mitsui Mining and Smelting Co Ltd , Japan’s biggest zinc smelter, plans to produce 109,100 tonnes of refined zinc in the first half of the 2021/22 financial year that started this month, up 9.5% from a year earlier, it said on Thursday.

The country’s first-half runs from April to September.

Zinc is used mainly as an anti-corrosive coating while making galvanized steel.
