We believe in a sustainable approach to business, and this is reflected in the way we manage our natural resources. Over the past 14 years, GMA has pioneered the research and development of garnet recycling and has invested substantially in building advanced garnet reprocessing facilities around the world.
Due to its superior toughness and low friability, GMA Garnet™ can be recycled up to five times without compromising its reliable, high quality performance. At our garnet reprocessing facilities, used garnet sourced from blasting is first cleaned to remove all contaminants including dust, rust, paint flakes, metallic particles and other impurities. This is followed by precise sizing into various grades to suit end user requirements. Strict sampling and quality control procedures ensure that sizing and purity are maintained to our own industry best standards.
GMA Middle East is committed to maximising the life span of our garnet resources, minimising the generation of waste from our garnet products and preventing this non-renewable mineral from going into landfills.
Since 2008 we have been working with customers to improve their commercial outcomes while minimising impact on the environment. This resulted in providing used garnet disposal solutions for our customers and developing used garnet recycling facilities.
The growing demand for our garnet recovery and recycling offer reflects the increased importance of sustainable practices and in 2012, we invested in a new pre-treatment facility. The new equipment was incorporated into our garnet recycling plant and has increased processing efficiency and improved the finished quality of used garnet.
GMA Middle East has been recognized by a number of world class customers, Middle Eastern municipalities and Environment, Health and Safety regulatory bodies for developing and promoting used garnet disposal within the region.
