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.
Representing only 0.1% of global cement usage, calcium aluminate specialty binders are true enablers in the world of construction, allowing builders to save time, boost productivity and leverage many innovations and sustainable options.
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.
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.
As it seeks to take on the challenges and opportunities of the future, Imerys needs partners in innovation with whom it can fully leverage the latest emerging and transformative research.
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.
The team's joint efforts brought recognition from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
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.
