Integrated Production System

Our Strong and Unique Selling Point

A smart principle that cuts energy and resource consumption and integrates environmental protection into our production process: at our large-scale production sites in Burghausen, Nünchritz and Zhangjiagang, we use byproducts from one production stage as starting materials for making other products. Auxiliaries required for this process are recycled in a closed loop and waste heat is utilized in other chemical processes.
