From geology to innovation
The Brucite+ brand began when we revealed to the world the enormous potential of brucite, a unique and precious mineral which has important applications in many areas of industry and agriculture. It provides a solution to global challenges related to environmental protection, and helps to make many human activities safer.
The name Brucite+ comes from the naturally occurring mineral brucite, and the ways in which it is used, as expressed by the graphic symbol +, as our magnesium-based raw materials are used in the manufacture of a wide range of finished goods, which, in turn, are used by millions of people around the world.
Brucite is a naturally occurring mineral form of magnesium hydroxide, and forms the main component of brucite ore. It was first described in 1814 and was named in 1818 after the American mineralogist A. Bruce (1777-1818). In its pure form the mineral is made up of MgO (69.12%) and H2O (30.88%). It has the highest magnesium content of the various magnesium-based minerals used in industrial applications.
Mission and vision
To discover new potential for the applications of brucite. Brucite+ is a key link in the complex industrial chain of our clients’ businesses, and the mineral’s versatility inspires us and gives us confidence to go beyond current practices and to seek out new ways to make use of the potential of this naturally-occurring mineral.
Our aim is to establish ourselves as the leading suppliers of high quality and environmentally friendly raw materials. By continuously increasing our extraction volumes and reserves, we are able to remain flexible in changing market conditions and promote the development of manufacturing industry around the world.

anywhere in the world by volume
The Brucite+ production facilities include three brucite milling plants and an indirect firing house with a total capacity of about 150,000 tons per year. The plants are completed with equipment from leading world manufacturers — «Hosokawa Alpine», «Riedhammer».
indirect firing shop
The first plant
The plant where grades of large particle size distribution are produced. The plant outputs AgroMag® — a mineral fertilizer and a feed additive. Its capacity accounts for 70 thousand tons per year.
The second and third plants
They produce finely milled EcoPiren® grades which are used by manufacturers of cable compounds and roofing membranes.
An R&D center is organized on the basis of production. It consists of a laboratory of physical and chemical methods of analysis and a polymer laboratory. The center carries out exploratory activities aimed at developing the existing areas of application of the Group of companies’ products and searching for the new ones.
