Where resources are put to an ecological use

An important pillar of our activities in the field of sustainability is our gentle use of resources. In the course of the past years we have, inter alia, significantly reduced the amount of waste when producing and processing lime. What is more, our company now produces no waste water whatsoever. Thanks to our own water treatment plant, we can clean the water coming out of our lime production ourselves and recycle it. We are thus active in environment protection that works.

«Following our strategy of ‘small, but beautiful’ we aim for the same output with less use of resources.»

Dr Konrad H. Marti, Head of Company Development, Kalkfabrik Netstal AG
