Sibelco has completed the sale of our abrasives activities

In May of this year, Sibelco entered into exclusive negotiations for the planned sale of our abrasives activities to EP Power Minerals, a European leader in the management of power plant by-products, blasting abrasives and industrial wastes.

That sale has now closed. Effective 1 December 2022, the abrasives activities in Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany and Finland, including all 43 employees, will transfer to EP Power Minerals.    

Sibelco’s strategy prioritises global leadership in silica sand and regional leadership in clays, feldspathic minerals, olivine, and glass recycling. This transaction provides further focus for Sibelco’s portfolio and will enable the abrasives activities to develop in a more suitable industrial environment.
