Three-day event marks formal inauguration of Imerys’ milestone calcium aluminate plant in Vizag, India
Since the launch of the first commercial sales a year ago, Imerys’ calcium aluminate plant in Vizag has brought the Group closer to customers in India and is supporting the country’s fast growing economic development.
Imerys exhibited and presented at this week’s UNITCER, a key technical conference for the refractory industry. Experts from the Group discussed new products, sustainability and how to support young professionals in the industry.
Philippe Bourg, Senior Vice President of our Refractory, Abrasives & Construction business explains that while carrying out a 40 million euro project during a global pandemic was certainly an ambitious objective, our teams stepped up to the challenge.
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.
Certification reinforces the quality of production for the food industry in Brazil.
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.
Projects and social actions were readapted at Casa Imerys and at the Hub Capim mines in Brazil, to maintain knowledge sharing with our neighboring communities.
Materials that were previously discarded after use became raw material in the hands of community residents close to our operations in Barcarena.
