In harmony with the environment

The Eisenwerk Sulzau-Werfen is located on the periphery of the Hohe Tauern National Park, therefore it goes without saying that production methods have to be environmentally compatible.


Environmental measures

  • The continuous reduction of operational waste.
  • The reduction of emissions by decreasing the emission of pollutants.
  • Use of production-specific waste (used foundry sand, slag, dust, sludge).
  • Careful use of energy, i.e. continuous reduction of electricity, gas and water consumption by means of improved technologies or recycled use of energy. 
  • Involvement of suppliers in our environmental policy.
  • Heat extraction of the heat created during the melting process is used to heat households in the area surrounding the plant.
