Bentonite production in CIS

     Bentonite is a colloidal clay with 70% montmorillonite mineral. This clay swells several times its original volume when placed in water and forms thixotropic gels when small amounts are added to water. The application range of bentonite is wide enough. It is used in medicine, cosmetology, wine-making, agriculture, construction, drilling and foundry. In recent years, the world output of the mineral made approximately 13 million tonnes. The USA, China and Greece take the world's leading position in extracting, processing and selling the mineral, Russia being a key bentonite producer in the CIS.  Having increased by 82% for the last 5 years, bentonite production is developing intensively in Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia.
