Clariant wins 2022 Anglo American Supplier Awards 6th February 2023
For the second year running, in 2022 Clariant has been named Outstanding Supplier by Anglo American. The award recognizes the partnership between the two companies.
Clariant was also recognized in the ‘Optimization’ category for its FLOTIGAM™ silica collectors, which enable a mine to separate silica from iron ore with minimal iron loses. Clariant customizes the collectors for each mine to achieve the maximum possible iron recovery while achieving or improving upon the required iron ore concentrate grade.
In the ‘Performance’ category Anglo American acknowledged Clariant’s ongoing support to enhance the silica collectors for reverse iron ore flotation and in other applications beyond flotation to help optimize operations.
In the ‘Sustainability/Social Projects’ category, Clariant was recognized for its work with nearby local communities. Clariant sponsors a project to promote sports activities among students, which expanded in 2022 to include one additional public school as well as classes for adults. The company also supports several other initiatives with students. This project has already benefited hundreds of people in the last six years and will continue in 2023. It’s the fourth time that Clariant and this important social initiative have been recognized by Anglo American.

Additionally, being recognized again for our contributions to sustainability and social responsibility really shows our commitment to living out our purpose – Greater Chemistry, between People and Planet,” said Anna Dacar, Head of Business Segment Mining Solutions.
