How we reduce the carbon footprint
of pipes by 90%

CO2-minimised pig iron production

Wear protection is environmental protection

We help our customers
to operate sustainably

Kalenborn develops and manufactures custom-fit linings for the protection of industrial plants against abrasion and impact wear. With our wear-resistant materials and pipe systems and wear protection for industrial plants, we secure the flow of materials and protect our customers‘ production from premature downtimes.

We use special processes for lining so that our customers can reuse their plant components. This saves resources in steel construction and reduces CO2 emissions to protect the environment.

We act sustainably across the entire value chain. We use environmentally friendly energies in the manufacture of our products and, with basalt and ceramics, rely on natural materials that can be regenerated.
