New solutions for a new age

My roots are in coal mining, personal and professional. I grew up in Germany´s main coal mining area , as the son of a mining engineer, followed by studying geology in Bochum and Aachen. After graduating, I spent more than twenty years in international coal mining and related fields, with technical and managerial positions in Johannesburg and Paris.

The international project work has familiarized me with the latest and most efficient technologies and practices, developed and used by international corporations in South Africa, Australia, the USA, Indonesia, and Colombia, among others. As a freelancer, I continue to follow the latest developments and actively participate in their development.

Today, advances in technical development allow any company involved in the extraction of bulk raw materials, such as limestone, rock salt, loose sediments, clays, etc., to implement new approaches to increase efficiency, productivity and reduce costs. Due to increasing competition and cost pressure, this is no longer just an option, but a necessity. I would be happy to support you with my knowledge and practical experience!
