ferroDECONT Ltd. is a spin-off company of the Montan University Leoben and was founded 2013 in the Center for Applied Technology. The company is based on the six years of research and development obtained by the company founders at the institute for sustainable waste management and technology.


After numerous laboratory tests, evaluation and experience, the engineering for the new process was developed, firstly in laboratory tests, followed by promising pilot scale tests.


Finally, the innovative ferroDECONT process was successfully field tested and registered as an international patent, which was the starting point for a young company with a specialized know-how and an excellent research network.
