The future of construction is sustainable. That future is what Imerys scientists recently exhibited at the Calcined Clays for Sustainable Concrete event in Lausanne, Switzerland with their white paper on low CO2 binder acceleration technology.
How is the mining industry responding to global trends? What are the main challenges and opportunities it faces, and what might the future hold? Our Chief Executive Officer, Alessandro Dazza shares his views on the role of mining in a changing world in this new LinkedIn article.
From homes, hospitals and schools, to clean power, water and transportation, and beyond, steel is an essential element for modern life. It is therefore vital that steelmakers are supported in their sustainability journey with solutions that help to reduce the carbon intensity of the steelmaking process.
Where do our mineral raw materials come from? How have they been produced and processed? What impact does their production have on the environment and society? Which sustainable benefits do they bring to the downstream value chain? The newly launched Imerys SustainAgility™ Solutions Assessment framework provides a transparent, straightforward approach to mineral sustainability.
This year, Imerys is extremely proud to celebrate the centenary of its French Fos-sur-Mer plant, specialized in the production of calcium aluminate based products. On April 30th, employees and their families were invited to take part in various events and festivities organized to commemorate 100 years of site existence.
Meet Thiobacillus, a common bacteria found in marine and terrestrial habitats that oxidizes sulfur to generate sulfuric acid, in turn dissolving and corroding concrete and steel. Enter Sewper® Liner, Imerys’ most recent innovation designed especially for the protection of concrete elements of new wastewater infrastructure assets.
3D printing technology is increasingly popular in the construction industry, as its use in layering concrete has both environmental and societal benefits.
Calcium aluminate has been used in sewer environments since the 1940s. Initially, the drivers for its use included its resistance to sulfates in soil, rapid return to service and superior abrasion resistance.
