Federal Minister Lemke: ”Innovative and economically valuable environmental technologies”

Federal Minister Steffi Lemke expressed her appreciation for HUBER's leading role in the environmental technology sector and emphasised the importance of increased cooperation between Germany and China in environmental protection. She emphasised the need to promote technologies that contribute to overcoming global environmental problems:

”This shows very vividly how innovative and economically valuable environmental technologies can be,” said Lemke. ”We are currently facing two future challenges in water treatment: firstly, the purification of wastewater that contains too many plastic particles and pharmaceutical residues, and secondly, the need to save water.”

”Protecting the environment is of great value and benefit to today's generation," said Xu Xiaojun, General Manager of HUBER China. ”We have worked hard and continue to do so to find sustainable solutions to China's wastewater and sludge problems, and our goal is to protect the environment on which we all depend.”
