Infineum will acquire ISCA UK’s emulsifiers business unit, which includes the ISCAMUL emulsifier brand.

The development has Infineum investing in the emulsion explosives market, and will allow it to better serve existing and new customers, the supplier said.

“I am really pleased that Infineum is moving into this area as mining technology is crucial for E-mobility, which relies on the supply of precious metals,” said Trevor Russell, CEO, Infineum. “This is a more sustainable method than other types of mining explosives, creating fewer fumes and gases, which aligns with Infineum’s sustainability agenda going forward.”
