EUROSIL was founded in May 1991 as the official body representing the European industrial silica producers.

The association provides its members with a forum in which to tackle regulatory, technical, health and safety and environmental issues and assures the representation of industrial silica at national and EU authority levels. It is a member of IMA-Europe, the European Industrial Minerals Association. EUROSIL’s membership comprises a total of 40 companies, most of which being members of national federations (see members list), covering more than 95% of the EU production. Eight EU Members States (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and the UK) and Norway are represented in the association. EUROSIL is a comprehensive source of information for all issues relevant to the industrial silica industry, with the exception of issues that might affect the free competition amongst its members.
