Sustainable development
Silica sand is a valuable raw material essential for the production of numerous everyday goods. For example, approximately 50 kg of silica sand is used in every car. Consequently, Quartz extraction is absolutely essential for our society. However, this cannot be at the expense of nature and the environment.

Sibelco has a tradition of mineral extraction with respect for nature. We already pay attention to the reuse of the site, the phased relaying and finishing of the quarries in the survey phase of a project. Sibelco is aware that the extraction of raw materials inevitably modifies the landscape. That is why, on each project, even at the preliminary study phase, a lot of care and attention is given to the end use of the land after mining is completed. Sibelco was awarded several prizes for this, such as one by the European Commission.
