Whether steel and aluminium for vehicle manufacture, cement for construction, industrial minerals in aggregates, coal as energy, or pigments for colourful living – mineral raw materials have countless applications in our world. They provide the crucial bedrock for industrial progress and will continue to do so into the future. At the same time mineral processing companies continually face more challenges. It’s not just about developing new deposits but also about processing efficiency – particularly the leaner ones. Crucial to processing machines is their availability, and as part of your larger operation they will need to consume less energy, water and chemicals. All in all these are challenges which can only be met using advanced, perfectly integrated technology. This is exactly what STEINERT provides.
