  • Innovative and open for new things

    Our know-how relating to fly ash and other power plant by-products is our great strength. We continuously develop our products to improve their quality and their application options. We try, among other things, to enhance the amount of fly ash in concrete, because every tonne of fly ash used as a concrete additive or binder substitutes as much as a tonne of clinker and so saves almost a tonne of CO2 emissions.

    However, we set great store not only by further development and optimization. Besides searching for further fields of application for power plant by-products we develop efficient new products for various industries or supplement our portfolio with meaningful products:


    For clean air in our cities

    For instance, Photoment®, the innovative concrete additive that decomposes harmful nitrogen oxides in the atmosphere, cleans itself, and for that received the Greentec Award in 2016.


    Biolite Technologies

    Rethinking fertilizer

    Sometimes external conditions make innovative thinking and development necessities. A good example of this is our British subsidiary Power Minerals Ltd. Adapting to the changes in the British energy market, the company has realigned its product portfolio.
