Less Waste, Lower Water Consumption

The positive development regarding energy consumption is also reflected in other environmentally relevant areas, as our key performance indicators for waste and water consumption show. All of the results are significantly lower than the targets in 2013. Thus, we see ALTANA as being on the right track to achieving the water and waste targets it set for 2017.


In 2013, ALTANA manufactured 418,000 tons of finished goods. To this end, approximately 390,000 tons of fossil, mineral, and metallic raw materials were used. In addition, water was used as a raw material.
