The evolution of mineral treatment for soils inside sustainable production systems.

APPLICATIONS

AGRICULTURAL INPUT

A holding with strong presence in the mining segment and the constant search for
sustainable business development, fostered the FMX project, where it was confirmed, after
more than 7 years of scientific research and analysis, the agronomic efficiency of the Silicate
Rock-Powder as a remineralizer, providing important mineral treatment for the soil profile.

BUSINESS INNOVATION

The demand for inputs that recover and manage soil is strategic for the sustainable
administration of economically explored areas, whether in agriculture or livestock. However,
despite all FMX’s attributes, synergy between technical recommendation services and
agronomic placement of the product, has to go within an integrated and innovative business
model to materialize the solution and optimize results on the production level.

PRODUCTION INTEGRATION

The impacts of industrialization and population growth, as well as their socio-environmental
effects, are among the greatest challenges of our time. In our management routine, we
understand that the inter-relationships between productive chains provide different forms of
business integration, allowing improvements in the production cycle. In particular, we
optimized and diversified our market share with the creation of the agribusiness unit, in
addition to traditionally producing aggregates for civil construction.
