Microsilica Success Story

Back in 2015, the European Commission was looking for success stories for their Industrial Emission Directive. Now it is official: silica fume (microsilica) has been recognised and published as a success story!

Elkem's Dr. Bernd Friede, Product Stewardship Manager / Corporate REACH Compliance Manager, recently stated: "I am pleased to inform that “Silica Fume” (microsilica) has been recognised and published as a success story under the framework of the Industrial Emission Directive (IED) of the European Commission".

Following a call of the European Commission to gather success stories back in 2015, our industry association  Euroalliages put forward Silica Fume as an example. Elkem was the main contributor to this exercise.

Dr. Friede further stated, "This is yet another example showing that it pays off to be actively involved in our industry associations in order to get acceptance for our industry on a European and international level".
