Clariant Mining to open new laboratory facilities in Texas, US

HOUSTON, US: Clariant Mining will upgrade to significantly larger laboratory facilities filled with state-of-the-art equipment when Clariant Oil & Mining Services moves into its new global headquarters, scheduled for completion in The Woodlands, Texas, in fall 2013.

In conjunction with Clariant’s Innovation Centre located in Frankfurt, Germany, the North American lab will be used to develop new flotation products to meet the demands of regional customers. Other capabilities include mineral analysis and laboratory-scale beneficiation testing from crushing to concentrate.

The planned laboratory facilities in The Woodlands are part of a series of specialized mining laboratories. Clariant has opened over the last several years in the world’s key mining regions including Johannesburg, South Africa, Guangzhou, China, and Saint Petersburg, Russia. These are in addition to seasoned labs in Santiago, Chile and Sao Paulo, Brazil, where Clariant Mining has been a leader in copper/molybdenum and reverse iron ore flotation.

“The new laboratories, which are four times larger than our current facilities in North America, were designed to host the most advanced mining technology available today. For example, the structure of the building accommodates a new two-story flotation column that will be installed as part of the upgrade,” said Paul Gould, Global Head of Marketing and Application Development, Clariant Mining.
