After decades of operation the Foufouilloux Nord site has been in the hands of nature and its biodiversity since 2014.
Filtration is a commonly observed practice by winemakers across the world. For decades, minerals such as diatomite and perlite have played a vital role in the process – removing unwanted substances and leaving wine producers with clear, quality wines.
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.
Imerys formally continues two key relationships that support its role in biodiversity preservation.
For years, virgin oils have been the in-demand ingredient in biofuels to help meet sustainability goals. Improved filtration techniques, thanks to minerals such as diatomite, mean even the most heavily contaminated waste fat can be used to run engines.
Specially treated diatomite, high-purity filter aids (HPFA) are used for solid/liquid separation in biotechnology and pharmaceutical applications.
