The ores are processed using exclusively developed proprietary technology to produce some remarkable eco-friendly and energy saving mineral based products for applications such as; ultra-lightweight concrete screeds, thermally insulating plasters, pollution-control, water treatment, swimming pool/pond filtration and farming.
