Dedicated production of Calcium Carbonate on the ground at a single customer site. This concept covers the manufacturing of tailor-made products for filling and coating purposes, PCC, GCC, or both, to optimize paper and board products. Such on-site plants are embedded neatly in the customer's production environment. All Omya facilities have the highest levels of modern automation and technology to ensure uniformity and high-quality production.

The On-Site Plant

Ideal concept to supply specific coating or filler pigments to nearby paper and board production sites. Utilizing the near-site concept, customers benefit from optimized logistics and cost-efficient production. The near-site solution fits when there are several customers within a reasonable distance creating preferable economies of scale. The fully automated near-site plant is designed to be expandable, as Calcium Carbonate consumption increases over time.
