Production Props to the Environment

  • Our wash plants and stockpiles for drying have been engineered to flow water back into the river once drained from the sand.
  • The burners used to dry the sand have strict temperature control and insulation installed, to reduce emissions. There are cyclones installed on each burner, ensuring there is no dust released.
  • Because our product is an uncrushed alluvial silica sand, there is no danger of silicosis.
  •  We are proudly in the process of completing the first biogas plant, for cleaner green energy to dry the sand.
