Environmental Management

At Monokem, we take a preventative approach to environmental management, and are constantly improving our established system with research into better technology and up-to-date scientific methods

Our factory in Rengas Dengklok, Karawang has a waste-water treatment plant to protect the surrounding environment, so that we may conserve this most precious natural resource. We have also established a practice of conserving water usage in our manufacturing processes. Residual inorganic wastes and sludge are chemically treated before disposal.

In addition, water monitoring is conducted daily and Monokem also maintains a biological pond to treat organic wastes to protect the natural habitat.

Our commitment is the same to the environment as to our customers` need. We are aiming towards achieving ISO 14000 certification for Environmental Management System within the next two years.

Zircon is a common accessory to trace mineral constituent of most granite and felsic igneous rocks. Due to its hardness, durability and chemical inertness, zircon persists in sedimentary deposits and is a common constituent of most sands. Zircon is rare within mafic rocks and very rare within ultramafic rocks aside from a group of ultrapotassic intrusive rocks such as kimberlites, carbonatites, and lamprophyre, where zircon can occasionally be found as a trace mineral owing to the unusual magma genesis of these rocks.

Zircon forms economic
concentrations within heavy mineral sands ore deposits, within certain pegmatites, and within some rare alkaline volcanic rocks, for example the Toongi Trachyte, Dubbo, New South Wales Australia[8] in association with the zirconium-hafnium minerals eudialyte and
armstrongite.
