Injection Permit

K+S Begins Negotiations with the BUND on a Settlement

After holding successful exploratory talks, K+S and the Bund für Umwelt und Naturschutz Deutschland e.V. (BUND - Federation for Environment and Nature Conservation Germany) have agreed to shortly commence negotiations aimed at reaching a settlement.

The goal is to end the legal dispute over the injection permit. This should, on the one hand, provide legal certainty for the water-law permit for the injection of saline wastewater in the area of the Werra plant, which is valid until the end of 2021 and, on the other hand, further reduce the impact on the environment.
