innovation | Sustainability and climate protection | #greenminded is when you capture and process greenhouse gases where they come from. This sustainable idea is particularly important in cement production: seven percent of global CO2 emissions are caused by the constantly growing industry alone. The good news is that thyssenkrupp's Oxyfuel allows the harmful greenhouse gas CO2 to be separated in concentrated form and made usable. Currently, thyssenkrupp is further developing the innovation in groundbreaking research projects. Social and political developments in 2019 also point even more clearly in the direction of tackling climate change.

innovation | Sustainability and climate protection | #greenminded is when unknown environmental toxins are getting in real trouble. We all know the climate killer CO2. However, only few of us know that the greenhouse gas N2O, often called laughing gas, is actually much more dangerous for our environment. N2O is about 300 times more climate-damaging than carbon dioxide. The EnviNOx® process dissolves the nitrous oxide into air.

innovation | Sustainability and climate protection | #greenminded is when for the next generation of bio-fuels no more food ends up in the tank. With the BioTfuel project thyssenkrupp aims to achieve exactly that: instead of edible plants such as rapeseed or corn, natural biomass waste is used as a raw material. The next step is to bring the technology to market. The team is testing the technology in two new plants in France.

Today, our engineers introduce a new era of roller coaster excellence: the MULTIcoaster. Based on our revolutionary MULTI elevator technology, the cableless ride is going to shake the theme park business forever. Chief Engineer Ela Vadoro gives us the first exclusive insights into the spectacular technology!
