Energy Solutions & Specialties

The Energy Solutions & Specialties business group is structured around the following four divisions:

Monolithic Refractories (Calderys)
Graphite & Carbon
Oilfield Solutions

Diversity of resources and expertise

The Carbonates division produces precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) and ground calcium carbonate (GCC), and limestone to address the local paper and packaging industries, as well as performance mineral applications (polymers, rubber, health, beauty, personal care and construction).

Under the brandname Calderys, Imerys’ Monolithic Refractories activity develops and sells monolithic refractories. These products are used for building and repairing refractory linings and can withstand high temperatures and severe operating conditions.

Imerys Graphite & Carbon division is the world leader in high performance solutions based on specialized graphite and carbons.

Following an internal innovation program which resulted in the filing of several industrial patents, Imerys has been developing its proppants and mineral drilling additives sales in Oilfield Solutions.
