Process Safety


Imerys Rio Capim Caulim values the quality and safety of its processes managed by a Management System based on ISO 9001:2008, 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 standards. Over the past three years, the company strengthened the safety of its operations in Pará. To reach 100% protection, investments in equipment, process automation and systematization, pipeline protection, and team restructuring and training have added up to R$6.3 million.



The work is permanent. In Barcarena and at the mines, efforts to reduce risks are constant. From the mines to the plant in Barcarena city, kaolin is pumped through two pipelines, crossing the cities of Ipixuna do Pará, Tomé-Açu, Acará, Mojú, and Abaetetuba. The pipeline route also cuts through the rivers Acará-Mirim, Acará and Mojú. The pipelines from the RCC and PPSA mines are 160 and 180 kilomeers long, respectively. Imerys personnel follow up this process by means of high-tech equipment 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
