Imerys organized and took part in a live discussion on how sustainable mineral solutions can help businesses reach their ESG goals – and the importance of including the entire supply chain in their efforts to reduce their environmental impact.
Synthetic abrasive grains such as fused aluminum oxide are at the heart of coated abrasives.
50 houses in Argentina have already been constructed with a new type of bricks made with 90% perlite residue - this is a perfect illustration of applying circular economy to the mineral industry.
With a desperate lack of healthcare supplies for Covid-19 patients in Brazil’s largest state, Imerys produced and delivered 3.3 tonnes of cryogenic perlite that was essential for safeguarding bottles of medicinal oxygen at the right temperature.
The mineral perlite is an effective replacement for microbeads in scrubs and shower gels – not only for its exfoliating performance, but for reducing plastic pollution in oceans.
