The entire production unit is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 approved and forms part of our CoMAH (SEVESO) upper tier status.
We have the capacity to carry out customised syntheses on request. Products are produced in varying concentrations and packages to customers' specific requirements. We have a unique plant that allows us to produce many metal salts and Rare Earth metal salts (Nitrate, Chloride, sulphate, acetate) some examples would be:
Copper, Zirconium, Scandium, Yttrium, Lanthanum, Cerium, Neodymium, Samarium, Europium, Terbium

The plant has recently been refurbished and upgraded and a new reactor with PLC/SCADA controls was installed. The improvements will benefit operator safety, improve environmental controls, and improve our safety profile under the CoMAH scheme.
