As a spin-off company of the Montanuniversitaet Leoben with close connections to the university research area, our work shows a high degree of innovation, which benefits our customers, especially in the context of closing the cycle for specific problem solutions.


Since 2013 we have been involved in eight university research projects (FFG, KPC, EIT) as applicants or partners. In addition, research contracts from industry were carried out on the basis of which new patents were granted.


We have a technical center with a laboratory at our location in Niklasdorf, which offers the necessary infrastructure for applied research and test facilities in the field of water treatment and recovery of critical or potentially critical raw materials.
