Omya AG (Switzerland) is another major company in the calcite market. It has been adopting organic and inorganic strategies to sustain its position in the market. For instance, in November 2018, the company established a research center for crop cultivation at Oftringen. It undertakes studies through the systematic analyses of natural calcium carbonate in agriculture. Insights gained at the center have proven valuable for the development of new products and innovative technologies for agriculture. In November 2018, Omya AG introduced a new functionalized calcium carbonate for use in biopolymers under the brand name, Omya Smartfill 55– OM. The new calcium carbonate is used particularly as filler material for polylactic acid (PLA) as this does not demonstrate almost any hydrolysis when processed at filler loads of up to 40%
