  • The “Engine” of Innovation

    Clariant Mining sees innovation as going beyond product and being inclusive of process, service, organization, marketing and the business as a whole: our business and our customers' business.

    Focusing on customer needs is where innovation begins. It's where we find the stimulus to seek new ways of satisfying ongoing customer needs in multiple dimensions. This means we strive to go beyond one-off isolated creativity for the new and better, and instead, seek innovation that brings real added value to customers in a broader sense.

    Clariant Mining aims to make innovation happen internally and as our customers need it. This implemented strategy is called “Innovation Excellence.”

    A Program for Innovation Excellence

    Innovation Excellence is the central process by which Clariant Solutions ENCOURAGES, NURTURES, MANAGES and DRIVES INNOVATION across and throughout the organization with the goal of “rapid market-to-idea-to-market.” True to our vision, Innovation Excellence inspires invention that brings significant success to our customers in a systematic, sustainable way and makes a real impact on their businesses.

    A key area of customer focus, and one that is of fundamental importance to our customers, is that of service delivery. Clariant Mining views service delivery as “process innovation in action.” Innovation Excellence drives the process of delivering customer benefits from innovation to where customers need them the most to grow and improve.

    Innovation Excellence is therefore the “engine” of innovation within Clariant Mining. It has created a culture for us that stirs a passionate attitude for customer focus, and has empowered employees to pursue that passion.

    By definition, it is a truly customer-focused organization that will drive innovation. Innovation is the means by which a company satisfies the unmet needs of its customers, and that is the way of Clariant Mining. As mining industry changes, we constantly adapt, re-engineer and evolve how we innovate and how we deliver sustainable value to our customers. Essentially, excellence in innovation happens when everyone shares the passion, is engaged with the customer and when everyone is part of the team.

    A brief look at the history and importance of mining

    Mining has a long and proud history. Since prehistoric times we have been crushing and grinding ores by hand pounding them with a hard stone then progressing to using metallic hammers. The evolution of mining technology has paralleled human development.

    The stamp mill was introduced in the middle ages to handle increasing operation levels. Later the grindstone was developed for more efficient grinding of ores. Many of today’s innovative separation technologies have grown from more ancient techniques such as panning for gold and hand sorting of minerals.

    The discovery that organic compounds were effective floating agents in the 1920s led to the use of flotation using oils to collect mineral particles and float them on the surface of aqueous slurries.

    Mining has played such an important role in the progress of civilization that many important cultural eras were associated with and identified by various minerals or their derivatives, e.g., the Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Steel Age and the Nuclear Age.

    Minerals such as gold have played an important role in the exploration and creation of settlements in the New World, California, Alaska, South Africa, Australia and the Canadian Klondike.

    Today surface mining continues to play an important role in providing the resources we need to keep civilization moving forward. We have become much more aware of the impact that mining activities can have on the environment. New techniques and processes are being developed constantly to minimize environmental impact while optimizing production levels.

    Clariant's FLOTICOR SI 7021 replaces a competitor's anti-scaling agent

    An iron ore mining operation in Minas Gerais, Brazil recently conducted a review of the anti-scaling reagent for its sludge thickener circuit. Clariant responded to the bid request, which required a reagent with similar anti-scaling properties of the product used in the circuit. However, the operation wanted to reduce reagent cost, achieved by either lowering consumption or maintaining dosage levels but at a lower price per unit. More Mining Services Case Studies

    Case Studiy - Fertala 1026

    From fertilizers to gun powder to enamel glazes, CPN has a variety of uses. Due to its ability to absorb ambient humidity, the salt can turn rock hard if not protected from moisture during handling and shipping. In an effort to reduce overseas shipping costs of its CPN product, one large producer in Chile approached Clariant with a goal of replacing its poor-performing anti-caking agent. Since the product was used in soluble fertilizers for fertirrigation and hydroponics applications, it required a non-coating hydrophilic (water soluble) anti-caking agent that weakens the salt’s binding properties.
