Chemours CEO highlights sustainable mining operations in Southeast Georgia; company is committed to habitat enhancement, wildlife habitat and returning lands to productive use on former mined lands

Sample article from our Sustainability & Social Responsibility

November 6, 2023 (press release) –

Georgia is on my mind after a great visit with the team at our Mission Mine in Southeast Georgia . Chemours is committed to our domestic mining operations which are an integral part of our Titanium Technologies business, but our success begins with our people, and I enjoyed hearing from the team about how they are leading the way in sustainable mining while meeting the needs of key domestic supply chains.

We are committed to leaving each mining site in a condition as good as—or better than—its condition when we arrived. Responsible use of natural resources requires a stewardship commitment in every stage, from extraction to processing and manufacturing to disposal. As part of our sustainability commitments, Chemours restores each of its mine sites to its pre-mine condition and works to restore mined areas as soon as possible.

In addition, on mined lands where there was disturbance prior to mine reclamation regulation, Chemours is committed to habitat enhancement that will return the lands to productive use and improve their value to wildlife. As a result of these efforts in 2022, we achieved Responsible Care® (RC) 14001 certification at all of our mining sites in Georgia and Florida . Additionally, we reclaimed 173 acres of disturbed lands, re-establishing the sites as wetlands, commercial pine plantations, or pastures, depending on landowner and regulatory requirements.

I want to thank the entire team at our Mission Mine for the productive time together and all the great work you’re doing. These minerals are essential, and we are committed to producing them safely and responsibly.
