Resource Efficiency in the Ceramic Industry

The ecological handling of materials, energy, and the environment is a must for our society! For companies, resource-conserving activities also yield a continuous improvement in the economic efficiency – of raw materials extraction and processing, transportation and production, and recovery and disposal of waste materials.

For many years we have been working in close cooperation with raw materials and ceramics producers on the topic of resource efficiency in the ceramic industry. We want to find solutions that can be integrated into your process – by recirculation of materials or by production-integrated exhaust air or waste heat emission control. We offer you:

1. Efficiency Analysis

Particularly in light of the latest cost trends, current problems frequently involve materials and energy efficiency in production. This applies both to raw materials production and to ceramics production. We apply our expertise towards carrying out the data analysis associated with this for you with respect to the requirements of the ceramic production processes.

2. Funding of Efficiency Analyses

We are recognized EffCheck consultants. “EffCheck” is a project carried out under the auspices of Effizienznetz Rheinland-Pfalz – or “EffNet” for short ( With an EffCheck, you can identify your potential for cost savings in the area of materials and energy efficiency as well as production-integrated environmental protection (PIEP) with the help of an external consultant. Up to 70% of the consulting costs for up to nine days of consulting can be funded. 

We are also official Demea consultants ( The German agency for materials efficiency “Demea” arose out of an initiative of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). Research projects for improving materials efficiency can be funded within the scope of the initiative “go-Inno” under the “go-effizient” category. Ask us about funding possibilities.

3. Practical Approach

Our practice-oriented approach is based on experience gained over the course of many years. We strive to elicit measures that are customized for your conditions, integrated into production, and efficient. We would be happy to advise you on current legislation and help you pinpoint the problems that should be addressed.

4. Analysis

Our activities are based on our wide-ranging analysis options, which are available to you for environmentally relevant tasks, for example, declaration analyses in accordance with LAGA M20 or tests in accordance with the German Wastewater or Landfill Ordinance.
