Natural Raw Material


Porcelain is made out of natural raw materials (kaolin, feldspar and quartz). The durability of porcelain goods make an active contribution towards waste prevention. Porcelain is inert and at its disposal it will not release any pollutant substances to the environment.


During the production process dropped porcelain mass is reprocessed and returned into the production loop. 
Already fired porcelain waste is going to be grinded and processed as filler in refractory linings of kilns. Therefore 100% of the material waste is reused.


With a background as a manufacturer of technical ceramic, we are one of the few porcelain producers who can offer an extensive range of production techniques.
