In a desire for sustainable development in harmony with nature, respect for the environment is NATUKU's primary concern in everything we do.
Our clay is extracted under the peat bog of the Manicouagan Peninsula (UTAMATSHIKUAN) along the St. Lawrence River.
Extractions are always carried out during the winter to have the least possible impact on the external environment.
The thick layer of bog is set aside to extract the mud as healthily as possible. Once the extraction is complete, the peat bog layer is put back in place for as much of a "zero-footprint" type extraction as possible.
Machinery used in the extractions is lubricated with vegetable grease and oil and not chemical hydraulic greases.
In addition, mineral mud is extracted by AEM Lab, a company which bears the seal of the UNESCO Manicouagan-Uapishka World Biosphere Reserve since 2007 for being an eco-responsible entrepreneur.
