Whether ground calcium carbonate (GCC) or synthetically precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC), Omya pigments always originate from the earth. This is why Omya has secured the purest and brightest ore bodies and exploits them with the highest sustainability standards while respecting the environment – both now and for the future. If the raw material is not a perfect fit for the customer's needs, it is further beneficiated using the most advanced techniques.
The raw material is then treated in state-of-the-art facilities where it undergoes several stages of processing, all fully automated, in order to ensure the most consistent quality for the end user. These automated processes have been developed and continuously improved in-house for decades and this outstanding experience guarantees that particle size distribution and brightness are perfectly adapted to the application.
Omya strives to have all its plants certified according to international quality, health & safety and environmental standards (ISO, OHSAS), as well as having our distributed products included within the certification.
We aim for safe and incident-free operations throughout the world. Omya considers regulatory compliance as a minimum requirement in its overall sustainability strategy.
