Sibelco Deutschland

The Environment

Libelle
Sibelco Deutschland is well-known for its success in environmental work for which we have received a wide range of awards.

It is the aim of the company and every employee to minimise the effect of our operations on the environment.

Back-filling and re-cultivation of our quarries, after mining has been completed, is a fundamental part of our business and is carried out in close cooperation with the respective authorities and communities.

Back-filling and recultivation or our quarries, after mining has been completed, is a fundamental part of our business. We integrate our working quarries into the surrounding landscape, minimising visual intrusion. We also take extensive measures to minimise emissions of noise and dust, and use well-established techniques to avoid contamination of watercourses and roads.

Once mining is completed, we rapidly back-fill our quarries, so that the land can be reclaimed for a variety of purposes, from reforestation and agriculture to road construction or industrial development.
