The Founders and CEOs: Robert Mischitz and Peter Müller, MSc

ferroDECONT GmbH was founded by the two founders at the Center for Applied Technology (ZAT) in Leoben. The AplusB Academia plus Business Funding Programme of the FFG in combination with the responsible persons of the ZAT supported and made the founding of the company possible in 2013.

The former start-up company was preceded by an intensive phase of research and development work at the Montanuniversität Leoben, where the two founders laid the foundation for today’s patented process. We would like to take this opportunity to expressly thank all our comrades-in-arms, sponsors and supporters.

A still close connection with the university in research and development issues reveals the starting point of our company.

Today we have already completed our first successful market appearance and a committed, great and willing to learn team at our side. With every experience gained, we can further develop and strengthen our path of sustainable wastewater treatment with the application of recyclable materials. In doing so, we want to make a contribution to conserving resources so that the generations that follow us can develop on a planet worth living on.


You are not only responsible for what you do, but also for what you do not do. (Laotse)
