Our Bentonite Mines Change the Land
FOR THE BETTER
No matter where we mine our bentonite clay, Clariant Functional Minerals always operates under the condition that every extraction is followed by recultivation. Be it forest, farmland, or wasteland, nature gives us and our customers valuable minerals. And we are committed to giving back.
Supported by the European Union, the LIFE project TECMINE is focused on assessing the environmental, technical, and social sustainability of different land restoration methods in mining regions of the Mediterranean. Clariant Functional Minerals is proud that its reforestation practices have been recognized by TECMINE as a reference for others to follow.
