New Product Development

Over the last decade, IMERYS Filtration & Performance Additives has led a renaissance in beer filtration. Every aspect of the filter aid and beer interface has been investigated – from beer chemistry to diatomite particle size, shape and density. These collaborations have produced innovations–from the only ultra-low BSI2 DE grades, to engineered mineral beer stabilization and clarification products like Celite Cynergy®.

Our new product solutions have:

  • Allowed our customers to replace higher cost, less environmentally friendly products with natural mineral solutions
  • Provided products that require less energy to produce
  • Improved processability in our customers’ processes
  • Created new performance characteristics in our customers’ end products, resulting in new marketing possibilities.

IMERYS Filtration & Performance Additives works with its customers to identify market and product trends that can produce new opportunities. These opportunities are then evaluated and those ideas selected become part of a staged process for the evaluation and development of new products.
