Arenas Argentinas del Parana invested in state of the art technology for processing sands to the proper products with a minimum of energy consumption and the preservation of clean air to the environment. The safety and health from our employees as well as the community and the environment are very important to us. Our activities create opportunities for people and local economies. Sustainable and responsible management are key to our company which we spread worldwide.

In our mining process, natural sedimentation of sand particles in the river is carefully dredged in layers with a minimum of environmental impact. Next to that, our process includes zero dust emissions to the environment compared to land mines.

The footprint of our process installation is optimized to the absolute minimum having minor impact to the environment and so a minor surface disturbance. In our process no water is needed, meaning zero waste water production, and minimum of fresh water consumption. During project planning and dredging operations, the hot spots with the highest yields are selected and so a minimum of “waste” is being produced.  The unusable fractions that are generated by the process can perfectly be used in the construction or other industrial activities, meaning actually zero waste production.
