VVB PRODUCTION PROPS TO THE ENVIRONMENT

Our wash plants and stockpiles for drying have been engineered to flow water back into the river once drained from the sand.

The burners used to dry the sand have strict temperature control & insulation installed, to reduce emissions. There are cyclones installed on each burner, ensuring there is no dust released.

Because our product is an uncrushed alluvial silica sand, there is no danger of silicosis.

We are proudly in the process of completing the first biogas plant, for cleaner green energy to dry the sand.
