Riley A.,  Imerys Minerals Ltd., Central Laboratories, Par Moor Road, St. Austell, Cornwall, PL24 2SQ, UK.


Imerys is a world leader in the extraction and supply of industrial minerals that find use in a wide variety of applications from functional fillers for paints, and polymers to mobile energy technology.  As an integrated international group from deposit through to customer, Imerys has an unmatched portfolio of resources in terms of diversity and geographic balance and an excellent grasp of large-scale mineral conversion technologies. Its innovation capability enables it to design high value-added solutions for its customers.


In this paper, the corporate culture and framework for a sustainable strategy is described and specific examples of technological product and process developments illustrating a strong focus on sustainability are given. These include the commitment to return our post-industrial landscape to their original habitats and using by-products once considered as waste in commercial products.
