Always in the limelight:
people and the environment
Environmental protection and careful use of natural resources deserve first priority. This is demonstrated in quarries by the careful and sustainable use of natural resources. Successful renaturation efforts in former quarrying areas are blessed by nature with an abundant succession of flora and fauna. Protection of the environment is also reflected in the respect for human requirements near the plant. This is why a noise barrier was installed in front of the rotary kiln in 2006 in order to minimize the noise level in a nearby residential area. The in-plant wastewater treatment system purifies the water and numerous filters provide clean air.
Märker uses state-of-the-art production plants and therefore keeps significantly below applicable emission limits.
