At K+S, we believe that sustainability has great value. As a responsible member of society, we strive to reduce our environmental footprint. For us, this also means minimizing the salt wastewater from our tailings piles.
We invite researchers, start-ups, institutes and all people who are driven by great inventiveness to participate in our brine challenge with their proposals. Share our challenge. Shape more sustainable solutions.
The goal is to find materials, coatings or any other material technology that can strongly reduce the brine production and/or protect the tailings from rainfall. The solutions ideally allow for permanent reduction/elimination of brine run-off.
