In 2011 Global Steel Dust entered into a partnership agreement with a Saudi company to build an EAF dust (EAFD) recycling plant in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia. The company, Global Steel Dust Gulf LLC (GSDG), obtained all the necessary permits to start building the plant and started with construction works in December 2012. The plant is located in the very well organized and strategically located 2nd industrial city of Dammam (Modon). The comercial production started in Q3 2016.

There are no other EAFD recyclers in Saudi Arabia. GSDG is proud to operate the first EAFD recycling and Waelz Zinc Oxide production plant in Saudi Arabia, and the GCC countries. The facility uses the Global Steel Dust's Waelz technology, the Best Available Techniques (European Union) and have an annual recycling capacity of 110,000 tons of EAFD. 

The EAFD is sourced from the different Saudi steel mills. GSDG offers to local steel mills an environmentally sound way to have their EAFD recycled rather than landfilling it. Thanks to the company's efficient Waelz process this EAFD waste is safely recycled into Waelz Zinc Oxide that is further processed by zinc smelters into pure zinc products.
