    A Sustainable Mindset for a Sustainable Supply Chain

    The Lohtragon® mindset around sustainability in metal salt production includes manifold principles to enable a responsible way of handling resources and to protect the environment. We are committed to this approach along the entire value chain. 

    Sourcing of sustainable produced raw materials is one of the key factors for our Lohtragon® portfolio. For example, for the production of several of our Magnesium salts we use raw materials, which are directly coming from nature. These products are committed to environmentally-sound mining, focusing on maintaining the natural environment as close as possible to its pre-mining state. Land restoration and reforestation with olive trees are carried out to bring the mining area back into line with the original landscape and to restore its full potential.

    Moreover, it is worth to consider the product form our magnesium salts, offering both solids and aqueous solutions. Comparing the aqueous solutions to its metal salt solids in terms of production (energy consumption) and logistics (transportation mode and distance), the aqueous product may enable significant CO2 savings, improving the carbon footprint of the specific supply chain. 

    Our Service Set-up Leading to your Added Value

    Our extensive Lohtragon® service set-up completes the product offering: from individual packaging and labelling, to technical application support, troubleshooting and more, we support your requirements – all leading to your added value.
