The ERACHEM plant of Tertre (Belgium) produces Manganese based chemicals designed for lithium-ion batteries, electronic and specialties and agrochemicals market. Tertre also recycles Copper spents from printed circuit boards. Its portfolio includes high purity Manganese Sulfates for lithium-ion batteries, numerous Manganese salts and oxides, reduced Manganese ore and Copper oxides and oxychlorides.

Geographically close to freight hubs,
Global supply from Western Europe to South East Asia

Ideally situated in the center of Europe and close to Antwerpen, one of the largest European ports, the Tertre plant is close to its European and Asian customers for electronics and specialty high performance salts and oxides.

Our Tertre facility has developed a broad portfolio of high quality Manganese chemicals answering high standards of electronics and lithium-ion batteries markets. Its state of the art large production capacities allow production of numerous salts and oxides with a guaranty to supply the purest products in the market. 

Proactively meeting stringent international standards

Active in the highly demanding micronutrient for feed additive market, we are expert in  “Good manufacturing processes”, high traceability and recall approaches as well as  “HACCP” procedures i.e. “hazard analysis critical control points”,  a system which identifies and  control dangers linked to feed safety. The plant is ISO-9001 and GMP certified.

Constant innovation, especially for Rechargeable batteries products

The Tertre plant implements the continuous improvement approach of the entire ERACHEM Group. This leads to regular improvement of our processes and organization in order to optimize production and continuously improve quality.

Listening to customer needs and acting on them thanks to team work with sales and R&D, the Tertre team develops new grades, especially in the lithium-ion battery domain.  For this specific industry, Tertre has developed a new high purity Manganese sulfate specifically suited to produce lithium-NMC hydroxide (Nickel Manganese Cobalt), a key raw material for lithium-ion batteries used in portable devices and electric /hybrid vehicles. Tertre also actively works to develop new Manganese Salts specifically designed to address the very stringent requirements of high performance new generation LiMn2O4 (LMO- Lithium Manganese Oxide) for portable and automotive batteries.

Tertre offers top of the class reliable Manganese chemical supplies. This reliability is also insured by very stringent maintenance standards which allow uninterrupted supply.

In line with the sustainable development approach of the Group, the Tertre plant has developed processes which preserve natural resources (water, air, soil). Tertre also continuously develop ways to optimize yields and reduce energy consumption. Tertre protects its employees and puts safety first. Tertre is ISO-14001 certified for the copper recycling unit and works towards obtaining the same certification for other units.
