The Troisdorf landfill is not only a cornerstone of the forward-looking
business development of MINERALplus, but also contributes to the security of
disposal in North Rhine-Westphalia. With completion of section
DA5 Lot 2, landfill operation is secured until the end of planning
permission in 2026.
Bridges, tunnels, cooling towers, wind turbines, canals, motorways, facades -
and, of course, foundations for modern buildings from small to large: As the
“building material of the 20th century”, concrete is all around us, and is now
even fine enough for use in living spaces. Cooperations like that between
Dyckerhoff and STEAG Power Minerals contribute to it remaining a popular
material in the 21st century too.
Blasting Abrasives Division moves to a single location
After a long planning phase, the move has now been completed:
Since July 2018, all the operational employees of the Blasting
Abrasives Division have been working under one roof with one
manager bearing overall responsibility. A total of five employees
gave up their base in Dinslaken and now work in modern offices
in Lünen in western Westphalia. This consolidation results in
many advantages for day to day work – even if some employees
face longer journeys to work.
STEAG Power Minerals has expanded the services available to its customers. Since the start of this year, our customers have been able to place their orders online in the Customer Order Shop twenty-four hours a day.
In order to reduce the pollution of urban air by hazardous nitrogen oxides in the long term, more and more local authorities are relying on paving stones which, thanks to the concrete additive Photoment®, are upgraded to form air filters. The demand for innovative solutions is likely to increase even further, as German courts may be about to order traffic bans from February 22, 2018 onwards.
Customers give STEAG Power Minerals a good reference
Excellent service and products of just as high quality – those are the arguments with which STEAG Power Minerals aims to convince its customers in the long term. In order to bring the range of products and services even more in line with the requirements of our business partners, the company performed a customer satisfaction survey at the end of 2016.
Support continued for school project against racism
Courageously combating prejudice: The school network “School without racism – school with courage” is fighting discrimination at over 2,000 schools throughout Germany. At the Brambauer Secondary School in Lünen, too, there are days devoted to a project against xenophobia. Ever since 2015, STEAG Power Minerals has been supporting the initiative there, and in that way taking on social responsibility at one of its production locations.
Not only in Germany, but throughout Europe, the increasing air
pollution by nitrogen oxides (NOx), especially in inner city areas, is a
problem which confronts towns and cities with major challenges –
and the pressure from environmental associations and the public
is growing. Photoment®, the concrete additive from STEAG Power
Minerals which reduces pollution, is an immediately usable technical
method of reducing NOx contamination. We present the current
construction projects with Photoment® and the extensive measures
taken by STEAG Power Minerals to ensure optimum positioning of
the additive at home and abroad.
