Omya is a leading global producer of industrial minerals, mainly fillers and pigments derived from calcium carbonate and dolomite, and a worldwide distributor of chemical products.  Since 1979, Omya’s Florence, Vermont facility has produced finely ground calcium carbonate for use in consumer products ranging from paint and paper, to vinyl siding and diapers.

Tailings generated from the mineral processing operations are managed on-site.  Sanborn Head has been proud to work with Omya since 2004. We helped Omya to develop systems to manage the tailings in accordance with developing state regulations with respect to groundwater quality and solid waste management, and to assist with public education of changes to the facility.  In addition, Sanborn Head has assisted Omya with air permitting, and site-wide stormwater management and hydrogeologic issues.
