How can climate policy goals be achieved respect to a more sustainable construction industry? What positive influence can mineral building materials such as autoclaved aerated concrete and sand-lime bricks have on this? These and many other questions were presented, discussed, and debated at the Col
Our recyclable construction and insulation materials promote the energy efficiency of buildings and contribute to environmental and climate protection. Nevertheless, we need natural resources for production and cause CO2 emissions. That’s why we are constantly working to improve the carbon footpri
Short transport routes, sustainable recultivation, and full utilization: Mineralogist Dr. Hartmut Walther talks to us about how the resource sand can be mined in a CO2-saving way while protecting nature.
When it comes to climate protection, the building and housing sector, as one of the largest CO2 emitters, has a special responsibility - at the same time, the savings potential in the building sector is enormous. There are various options for building in a climate-friendly way. Xella Technologie und
The construction industry is considered one of the biggest consumers of resources and energy. For this reason, it has a special role to play in climate protection. Our focus: offering solutions that are durable, ecological, and recyclable – and yet remain affordable. That's why we invest in resear
High-quality quartz sand is one of the most important raw materials for our products. The continued existence of our production is largely dependent on the quality and security of supply of the sand. To this end, samples from sand deposits are regularly tested.
Innovation management, basic research, and technological development: This is the foundation on which we position the Xella Group for the future and meeting societal as well as industry-specific challenges – be it climate protection, energy savings, or resource efficiency. Since 2004, we have ther
Every year, Xella Technologie- und Forschungsgesellschaft carries out over 7,000 tests to ensure the quality of our autoclaved aerated concrete, calcium silicate bricks, and mineral insulation boards, starting with the raw materials used and ending with the finished product.
Whether autoclaved aerated concrete, calcium silicate units or mineral insulation boards - the Xella Group's product family is diverse. In order to be fit for the future, Xella is researching to align them to new markets.
What are the requirements for our products and how do we manage to meet them? An important component of quality assurance at Xella is the control of the raw materials which are used.
With the Center Construction Robotics, the construction site of the future is being created on the RWTH Aachen campus with the participation of renowned industrial partners.
What can be used in the recycled end-product and what cannot? The decisive factor for our quality standard in the use of post-demolition autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) is the sorting accuracy.
Xella's cooperation with Otto Dörner and Holcim shows how autoclaved aerated concrete residues are processed and reused in the manufacture of new products.
As one of the few European companies in the building materials industry, Xella operates its own technology and research company (Technologie- und Forschungsgesellschaft / T&F) near Berlin.
