Industrial Minerals Europe (IMA-Europe) is an umbrella organisation that brings together several European associations specific to individual minerals.
IMA-Europe provides sector-based representation for industrial minerals. The association is mainly focused on providing representation at the European Union (EU) institutional level and coordinates communication with national and international authorities.
IMA-Europe is involved in all non-commercial issues relating to minerals’ properties and their safe use, from extraction and processing through to end-use applications. Health and safety at the workplace, environmental protection, product safety, and awareness about the importance of industrial minerals for society are at the core of IMA-Europe’s priorities.
IMA-Europe ensures that the industrial minerals industry benefits from sharing non-sensitive information, and plays a supporting role in the promotion of best practices.
