British Calcium Carbonate Federation Affiliates to the Mineral Products Association as Focus on Industrial Minerals Grows
The British Calcium Carbonate Federation (BCCF) have agreed to join the Mineral Products Association (MPA) as affiliate members.
BCCF has nine member companies with a common agenda which aligns closely with a number of MPA’s Industrial Mineral Product Groups, including cement, lime and silica sand. MPA is enhancing its focus on the Industrial Minerals sector also recently welcoming Imerys as a new member.
Nick Horsley, formerly of Sibelco, and now MPA Director of Wales and Industrial Minerals will be coordinating cross product group dialogue to raise the profile of industrial minerals and strengthening alignment on common issues.
BCCF Chairman Mick Stovin of Francis Flower said:
“I am delighted that this important development is happening and am confident that future working with MPA will ensure that important industrial minerals particularly calcium carbonate and lime can cooperate more effectively on policy issues of common interest”.
MPA Chief Executive Officer, Nigel Jackson said:
“Industrial minerals are an essential constituent of the mineral products family and facilitating the exchange of ideas and identification of common issues must only serve the interests of each product group better. We anticipate further growth and development in this area of our work.”
