Silicosis: a serious issue
Today, there is a growing policy focus on restricting the trade of products with high crystalline silica content.
The market demands a new industrial raw material free from crystalline silica while maintaining the same features of natural quartz aggregates.
Over the past decade, Breton and its Institute of Technology (BIT) have prioritized operator safety and waste reduction as strategic goals.
This commitment has led to the development of Biorite®: an industrial material 100% crystalline silica-free, totally safe for operators and with the same technical features as quartz.
