The United Nations expects the world population to grow to almost 10 billion by 2050. At the same time, however, agricultural land and raw materials are limited and increasingly difficult to access. A lasting and sustainable coverage of the increasing needs of mankind is therefore only conceivable if new raw material deposits are developed, raw materials are extracted in an environmentally compatible way, resources are used as efficiently as possible and, where feasible, returned to the material cycle after use.
K-UTEC meets these challenges with the vision of sustainable extraction as well as the most efficient and environmentally compatible use possible of all inorganic mineral salt mixtures obtained for the production of inorganic fertilizers for agriculture or chemical raw materials for the chemical industry.
K-UTEC concentrates on the development and application of innovative processes to make the use of inorganic salts and minerals as efficient and sustainable as possible. Our company focuses on tailor-made solutions that are optimally adapted to the conditions of different projects and customers.
Our task begins with the evaluation of new raw material deposits using state-of-the-art geophysical and geological exploration methods and the subsequent planning of ecologically sustainable extraction. K-UTEC focuses on future-oriented methods of mining or soling with high extraction rates per unit area. In the course of processing the extracted crude salt mixtures, K-UTEC helps its customers with a process-optimized process technology to process as many of the valuable materials contained in a mining product as possible into saleable products in an economically efficient and environmentally friendly way.
All mining work is monitored geophysically during the operating phase. By monitoring operational and decommissioned mines, K-UTEC also ensures safe operation and combines the necessity of backfilling with the environmentally compatible disposal of residual materials.
Knowledge and Innovation
Every deposit and every raw material has its own characteristics. Accordingly, the challenges K-UTEC tackles traditionally vary from project to project. For our research and engineering company, it is part of our day-to-day business to make use of decades of experience and existing expert knowledge in order to develop tailor-made solutions for our customers again and again. Our employees are convinced that the continuous expansion of knowledge and know-how forms the basis for progress, which is necessary to be able to solve the problems and tasks of our customers in the best possible way in the future as well.
Responsibility and Sustainability
Entrepreneurial success only lasts if it is achieved sustainably. Therefore, in addition to economic aspects, ecological and social aspects also play a decisive role in day-to-day operations. This applies both to projects carried out on behalf of customers and to social and environmental responsibility towards employees and the region.
K-UTEC is commited to act responsibly in the best interest of our customers, suppliers and service providers as well as employees and our communities. We aim to comply with strict safety regulations as well as health and the environmental protection regulations.
Integrity and openness
Equal opportunities and openness towards different cultures, ways of thinking and approaches are for K-UTEC standards of action. Therefore, great importance is attached to a pleasant working atmosphere, which requires an open exchange of ideas between business partners and employees and enables a respectful and trusting interaction among each other. K-UTEC is also committed to the observance of internationally recognized human rights and respects the culture and laws of the countries in which K-UTEC employees work around the globe. Corruption in any form is strictly rejected by K-UTEC.
By entrepreneurial action we mean developing existing and new potentials independently and on our own responsibility in the interests of the company and its customers. This also includes looking beyond the "edge of one's plate" on one's own initiative and, where necessary and necessary, initiating change, building on strengths and recognising new trends. K-UTEC uses the resulting business opportunities for the benefit of the company and its customers and business partners, without neglecting the careful consideration and hedging of associated risks. All employees contribute to the success of K-UTEC through responsible entrepreneurial thinking and acting.
