CEES is the organisation representing the European Silicate Industry. It brings together Western European Producers of Soluble Silicates. CEES is a Sector Group of Cefic.

CEES members manufacture more than 700,000 tonnes (1998 figures) of soluble silicates (calculated as SiO2) representing more than 90% of total West European production. More than half this production is used as a feedstock raw material for further chemical manufacture, mostly silicas and aluminosilicates. Overall, the silicate industry makes a valuable contribution to the Western European economy.

CEES members operate modern, fuel-efficient plants maintaining the highest standards of health and safety to protect both the workforce and the environment. All CEES members full support and implement the Europe-wide Cefic Responsible Care initiative.
