DE TIJD – DIY diamonds are turning the luxury sector upside down

The future for the diamond industry or a Frankenstein’s monster that will bring the sector down? Traditional players in the diamond sector are more nervous than ever now that lab-made stones are breaking through en masse. ‘Anyone who has not prepared for this will face big problems.’

For a moment it looks like Vikram Shah is starting an early office raffle, but we are wrongly concerned. The bowl with numbered pictures that the CEO of the start-up Heyaru takes from the safe turns out to be the raw material for the above-ground diamond mine that the Indian entrepreneur has developed on the former Philips site in Lommel.

The Race to Grab the Market Share for the Material Of the Future

India introduces new laws around the LGD (Lab Grown Diamond) Industry. The Indian Finance Minister, Madam Nirmala Sitharaman states how LGD properties are the same as natural diamonds, and with that in mind encourages to grow the production in India. Her team proposes to review taxes on LGD, further allowing to reduce the overall cost of production and promote make in India.

Seeing India as a nation support the LGD industry so strongly, we in Belgium are proud to have our very own European lab grown diamond company, Heyaru Engineering, in Lommel, Limburg. Despite multiple hurdles like COVID and the energy price crisis, the company continues to grow at a steady pace, increasing their production quantity and soon completing the construction of their first building on the Diamond Valley Campus in Lommel. We are proud to say that Heyaru puts Belgium on the world map of Diamonds growers. Unlike many other locations, Heyaru thrives to do their production in an environment friendly and a sustainable way.

Lab Diamonds – The New Luxury

From a spoonful of seaweed caviar to a designer pineapple leather bag: is fake the new luxury?

No luxury product is surrounded with so much romance as diamonds. Naturally mined quality diamonds are rare, the processing process is cumbersome and not without controversy. And what do we do if the stones ever run out? Diamonds produced in a laboratory nowadays offer an answer that is ecologically responsible, transparent, sustainable, faster and cheaper. In Lommel, work is currently being done on a real ‘Diamond Valley’: the Indian company Heyaru is specializing in the production of diamonds. The Antwerp jewelery brand Idyl is conquering the world with lab-grown diamonds and has celebrities like Jessica Alba among its fans.

Heyaru and Bronkhorst join forces in the production of diamonds

Heyaru Engineering, manufacturer of laboratory grown diamonds, plans for a multimillion Euro investment in Lommel, Belgium for which they have received STS support from the Flemish government.

A couple of months back Heyaru created their first Belgium grown diamond. Once the complete project is installed (in about 5 years) Heyaru will be able to produce about 200 Kilos of Laboratory grown diamonds per year. The company will be the largest diamond grower in Europe.

For reaching to that amount of production quantities, Heyaru will need couple of hundred of reactors. Bronkhorst High-Tech, with its headquarters based in The Netherlands, have entered into a relationship with the Bulgarian partner of Heyaru, supplying state of the art, plug & perform gas flow controllers for the fully automated reactors.

Bronkhorst will play a crucial role in designing, building & implementing the flow controllers to increase reliability, improve yield, and enhance safety of Heyaru’s employees and the process. By joining forces with Bronkhorst, one can say that Heyaru generates indirect employment in The Netherlands.

Focus On Belgium

In the Flemish town of Lommel, Heyaru Engineering has started the production of authentic Belgian synthetic diamonds, also called laboratory diamonds.

Today, synthetic diamonds already represent 2% of the jewellery market and celebrities such as Lady Gaga have already been noticed with them. As it happens, because diamond conducts electricity well, the company is thinking of using it for other purposes as well, especially for energy applications or in super-powerful computers. Over the next ten years, Heyaru will invest more than 200 million euros in additional diamond furnaces in order to increase the production capacity to approximately 200,000 kilos per year.

The Indian company Heyaru Engineering wants to expand its site in the Lommel Kristalpark in five to ten years into the largest diamond factory in Europe, with 120 to 150 employees.

The Indian company Heyaru Engineering is investing 26 million euros in a company that will make synthetic diamonds in Lommel. Flanders supports the investment with 2 million euros. This was announced by Flemish Minister of Economy Philippe Muyters (N-VA) this weekend. Heyaru has the ambition to expand its site in Lommel over the next five to ten years into the largest ‘diamond factory’ in Europe. An investment of 262 million euros, good for 120 to 150 employees in the long term. The proximity of Antwerp, where all the diamond expertise is, almost certainly played a part in the decision of the Indians.

2 million euros in aid for synthetic diamond production at Heyaru in Lommel.

On the proposal of the Flemish minister Muyters, the Flemish government grants 2 million euros in aid to Heyaru Engineering NV. The company wants to develop synthetic diamonds in Lommel.

The synthetic diamond industry is still quite young and even completely new in Flanders. However, synthetic diamonds are used for more and more applications. Only 2% of natural diamonds have the necessary hardness to be used in industrial and technological applications such as optics, telecommunications or energy. Synthetic diamond therefore fills an important gap there. The limited number of suppliers active today cannot meet current demand and the global market is expected to grow by as much as 82% in the period 2016-2025.

€2 million support for synthetic diamond production

“Heyaru, which is now producing synthetic diamonds on a small scale in India, is aiming to open the first such plant in Europe in Lommel,” Muyters said in a press release. “The production facility will become the group’s central hub for production and for research into new techniques and applications. The company is investing more than €24 million. For such an important development, the Flemish government is contributing €2 million.”

The first phase will see approximately 15 jobs created. Heyaru aims to grow into a facility with hundreds of reactors and 120 to 150 employees within the next five to 10 years.

“The investment in Heyaru not only brings with it new jobs; the company also wants to contribute to the expansion of a Flemish knowledge cluster based on synthetic diamonds,” Muyters said. “An important part of the project is the establishment of its own research and development centre, working with Flemish knowledge institutions. Heyaru’s presence will provide important pulling power for other businesses – something that’s good for the future of the Flemish economy.”
