With 1.5% of its turnover dedicated to R&D the Group develops processes that are 100% Moroccan. Managem Group is a pioneer of innovation in Morocco, in the areas of chemical and hydrometallurgical industry
Managem Solidaires (“Managem Solidarity”)
Managem contributes to economic and social development, has a strong community outreach program for the surroundings of its sites, through the Managem Solidaires (“Managem Solidarity”) program that covers 4 areas of intervention:
- Solidarity for student success;
- Solidarity to offer new opportunities;
- Solidarity for the welfare of the community;
- Solidarity for entrepreneurship
In a collaborative process, Managem dialogues with local communities to identify their needs, and acts through substantialand targeted actions to improve their living conditions. The program has deployed a total budget of 35 million dirhams for the year 2014.
The Group aims to reduce its carbon footprint by lowering the annual electricity consumption of each of its sites from 5% to 10%, streamline the recycled water consumption and minimize the intake of fresh water for treatment processes.
In addition, the Group has implemented a "zerowaste" program that aims to putthe tailings resources through a recycling process through R&D : waste generated by mining operations is transformed to create new business opportunities through the development of new products.
In 2013, the Guemassa industrial complex has started operating its sulfuric acid plant. Its industrial process permits the valorizationof the mine’s tailings and their transformation into new products (iron oxide and sulfuric acid) while producing clean energy for the site.
