Zelzate (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈzɛlzaːtə]) is a municipality located in the Belgian province of East Flanders. The municipality only comprises the town of Zelzate proper. On January 1, 2006, Zelzate had a total population of 12,176. The total area is 13.71 km² which gives a population density of 888 inhabitants per km².

Zelzate is divided into two parts by the Ghent–Terneuzen Canal. There is a concrete drawbridge and a tunnel to connect the two sides. Zelzate is known for the nearby polluting industry, which makes it the village with the lowest air quality in the country.[2][3] Recently ArcelorMittal Ghent (Sidmar) made a major investment which resulted in an emission decrease of 90%.
