Environmental protection by reducing harmful emissions

We adhere to the principle of environmental safety in all our activities: we minimize the negative impact of our mining and production activities and also support a healthy ecology in the regions where we operate. We believe that our efforts to protect our environment will enable us to achieve net zero emissions in respect of both our raw materials and end products

Environmental solutions and projects

Cleansing waste water of harmful residues
01
Cleansing waste water of harmful residues
MagTreat® efficiently cleans and purifies industrial and municipal waste water. It is not a harmful chemical compound, and its high magnesium content allows it to be used as an alternative to environmentally harmful reagents.
High level of fire resistance
02
High level of fire resistance
EcoPiren®, a flame retardant for polymer materials, prevents them from dripping when burning, absorbs smoke and reduces its toxicity. It is able to reduce the harm caused by fires to both human health and the environment.
Reducing sulfur oxide emissions
03
Reducing sulfur oxide emissions
Sulfur oxides are among the most environmentally harmful by-products of the shipping industry. In 2020 the International Maritime Organization called for significant reductions in sulfur dioxide emissions, and this is where MagTreat® comes in — it is used in scrubbers to remove sulfur from exhaust gases.
Environmentally harmless fertilizers and animal feed additives

Environmentally harmless fertilizers and animal feed additives
AgroMag® is intended for use as a natural fertilizer and feed additive, which can significantly increase crop yields and improve the physical characteristics of cattle and pigs and reduce the risk of illness, while eliminating the need for any harmful chemicals or antibiotics.
Minimizing harmful emissions from manufacturing industry
05
Minimizing harmful emissions from manufacturing industry
Harmful emissions from industry are one of the major causes of air pollution and damage to the ozone layer. To remove sulfur dioxide from the gases they emit, manufacturers use devices known as scrubbers. MagTreat® is used as an alkaline additive to regulate the pH level of the circulating water in scrubbers and to neutralize acidic sulfur oxide gases.

Environmental friendliness at every stage

Environmentally safe products

The products made by Brucite+ contain only natural raw materials and no harmful chemical compounds. The products in the MagTreat® range are certified by Carbon Footpint Ltd, an independent assessor that has analyzed their life cycle and rated them as environmentally safe.

Environmentally safe products

Environmentally safe production processes

In its production facilities in Smolensk region, Brucite+ has established an environmental management system in full compliance with ISO 14001:2015. The system serves as a means of achieving sustainable development goals as well as a guide to all the company employees.

Environmentally safe production processes

Environmentally safe mining practices

The Kuldur brucite deposit is mined from the surface, without causing any harm to the environment. The carbon emissions from the mining process are minimal — just 9g CO2 equivalent for each kilogram of mineral extracted.

Brucite+ takes every possible measure to ensure that the development of the Savkinsky deposit does not have any negative impact on the ecology of Russia’s far east.
