Vinnolit Contributes to the Preservation of the Alz River

At the end of May 2015, eight companies from the Bavarian Chemistry Triangle, including Vinnolit, founded the environmental protection initiative named “Naturnahe Alz e.V.”. The purpose of this association is to support the State of Bavaria in its renaturing of the Alz River and to strengthen the ecosystem long-term. Manmade changes in the river’s course is being reversed and the original riverbed restored. These measures will create better living conditions for the flora and fauna.

The association, cooperating closely with the Water Management Office Traunstein, intends to co-finance the required measures along a section from Trostberg to the mouth of the river near Marktl, Germany. An advisory board whose members include the Bavarian Ministry for the Environment, the Water Management Office Traunstein, and the Bund für Umwelt und Naturschutz (Friends of the Earth Germany) provide the expertise required to ensure support for the right measures.
