Univar: From Pit to Port, Your Trusted Advisor™

Univar delivers operational value to modern mining by offering the broadest portfolio of products and services from a delivery network that's second to none. Companies in the mining industry choose Univar because we understand that each customer is unique. Our custom-tailored service approach provides a total cost of ownership – from streamlining your vendor base and inventory strategies to minimizing and consolidating spending. Univar's dedicated Mining business unit serves no matter where you are in the mining life cycle.

Mining chemicals play a vital role in enhancing the productivity and efficiency of mining processes, such as extraction, recovery, water treatment, transportation, and the general maintenance of equipment. Univar provides an unparalleled portfolio of mining chemicals across the production life cycle, including frothers, flocculants, leaching agents, extractants, antiscalants, dispersants, filter and dewatering aids, and more.

We serve all major phases of the mining life cycle, including:

  • Production – From dust and erosion control to lubricants and water treatment, we work with you to determine the right chemistries for this important phase and throughout the remainder of the lifecycle as your mining needs change.
  • Processing – We support the recovery of your total mining process and understand your need to transport "24/7/365." That's why we provide technical resources and specialized chemistries, such as anti-freeze agents, dust control, collectors, frothers, pH modifiers, depressants, anti-scalants, flocculants, coagulants, and others. We also provide the logistics know-how to guide the safe recovery, processing, and transportation of minerals and metals from the mine to ready them for commercialization.
  • Commercialization – For the capital invested to beneficiate the mined product, we work in partnership with you to load and ship the mined product with dust control, anti-caking freeze conditioning, and the shipping and packaging requirements associated with each.
  • Reclamation – To dismantle facilities and returning a mine to its former safe and stable state, Univar provides a suite of reclamation chemistries, including waste management, water treatment, erosion protection, and vegetation chemistries.

At Univar, we've made it our business to earn your business for life. From Pit to Port, count on Univar to be your trusted advisor and earn your support as a Customer for Life.
