HOBART'S Nyrstar zinc works has been recognised as an Engineering Heritage National Landmark.

Nyrstar Hobart general manager Jeremy Kouw said the award was testament to the hard work, innovation and contribution of the site's employees over its almost 100-year lifespan.

"From its inception in 1916 when Tasmanian industry entrepreneurs identified an opportunity to attract big business to the state with affordable energy through hydro-electric power, to continuous advancements today, we remain Tasmania's largest exporter," Mr Kouw said.

"The plant has produced a number of highly advanced technical metallurgical methods, cementing it as one of the most advanced and reputable in the world, supporting its continued growth from 100 to 800 tonnes per day of high purity zinc metal over the past 96 years of production."

Environment, Parks and Heritage Minister Brian Wightman said Nyrstar has embraced its role as an innovator in engineering.

"Alongside Hydro, the zinc works is one of Tasmania's great industrial heritage stories," Mr Wightman said.

"The electrolytic zinc works, established in 1916, changed the face of industrial zinc processing in the southern hemisphere.

"Today, it remains one of the largest and most efficient zinc smelters in the world.

"Tasmania has great natural beauty and a fantastic lifestyle. But we also have an exceptional man-made history to be proud of.
