K+S invests in diverse measures to protect the environment and maintain the variety of species. This “fish ladder” on the Werra river for the weir near the Harnrode hydroelectric plant makes the Werra more easily accessible for fish and small animals.
Economic Efficiency and Environmental Friendliness
The commercial success of K+S is closely related to the efficient use of all raw materials and materials deployed in the value added chain.
We employ modern exploration and mining processes and are continually furthering the development of our process technology in order to increase the yield of valuable substances and, at the same time, reduce our consumption of energy and water. We thus strengthen the international competitiveness of our sites while ensuring the impact on the environment remains as low as possible.
