Imerys opens its extended European Technology Center
Over an area of some 2500 m², the new site is intended to focus Imerys’ R&D resources on its key markets, while at the same time enabling knowledge to be shared with other laboratories elsewhere in Europe, the US and Asia. Recognised as a laboratory engaged in optimising and developing new mineral-based solutions for plastics (virgin, recycled and biopolymer resins), elastomers and life sciences, the Toulouse Technology Center is also a world centre of excellence for polymer applications.
Access to major university and scientific resources
With this new investment, it now boasts experts and equipment for the ceramic, building materials, filtration, health and food & feed markets. The Toulouse laboratory expanded its capacity at the end of 2020 and now employs more than 50 French and international technicians and scientists. According to Imerys, the location in Toulouse means that the Group will now have access to major university and scientific resources throughout a region that is home to major R&D initiatives.
