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.
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.
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.
Entire supply chain has a role in improving sustainability, say minerals experts and customers in online discussion
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.
