EP Minerals opens plant in Nebraska
EP Minerals LLC, an industrial minerals company headquartered in Reno, said last week it opened a new perlite filtration media plant in Blair, Neb.

It’s used for filtration of water, pharmaceuticals, food, wine and other beverages as well applications in construction, landscaping, and biofuel production.
