An important part of our research & development work consists of projects for environmental protection, such as the reduction of noise and emission, the sustainable use of our resources, the efficient use of energy, as well as the reduction of CO2.
One current project is devoted to the development of an inorganic cement-based sand binding system. This DBU-funded project was carried out in cooperation with the Foundry Institute and the Institute for Ceramics, Glass and Building Materials at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg, together with another partner from the binder industry. Within the scope of this project, an inorganic cement-based sand binding system was developed and successfully tested; the system has similar processing properties as the furan based resin we use today. A follow-up project now focuses on the regeneration of this new molding material.
