Technology & Innovation (T&I) is a primary driver behind Sibelco’s transformation from an industrial minerals supplier to becoming a leading provider of material solutions. Our T&I efforts are built around three innovation domains: Process Technology, Advanced Materials and New Business Models.
Innovation at Sibelco goes way beyond what you might traditionally refer to as research and development. It is about harnessing the know-how gained from R&D and turning it into value in the form of a successful new or improved process, material solution or business model. We aim to gain a rich understanding of our customers’ needs within the context of their short, medium and long-term goals. This means building relationships over years, resulting in trust and mutual respect.
We will measure our success over the period 2019-2025 by seeking the commercialisation at least one new product from our innovation pipeline each year.
