Our approach

Our vision

We want to make the world cleaner and greener. We are convinced that it is possible to solve environmental problems in an efficient and sensible manner with innovative and simple approaches. We believe that “Green Technologies” are the future ensuring a healthy environment and economic growth.

Ecology and green chemistry

Most existing remediation methods are insufficient. They are often expensive and produce toxic by-products. Our processes are environmentally friendly, sustainable and follow the principles of “Green Chemistry”: We work with environmentally neutral reactions, which have no negative impact on our ecosystems in both production and application.
