Complex tasks require special structures.

In the raw materials sector, synergy effects can only be achieved through the cooperation of specialists from different disciplines and specializations, as well as through a constant exchange of experiences. GKZ combines these strengths; skills from industry, administration and science to complement and promote further development.

GKZ is committed to mining and its entire value chain - from exploration to extraction, processing and recycling. In the same way GKZ supports the use and preservation of regional natural stone as well as the qualification of crafts and manufacturing industry. The energy policy focus of the renewable energy lays in the development and use of geothermal energy. In the geotechnical field, our organisation deals with the challenges of large infrastructure projects with mining engineering as well as participation in locating a German repository for radioactive waste.

GKZ is actively involved in the implementation of the Saxon and European Raw Materials Strategy and, in particular, in the important issues of improving raw material awareness and R & D. GKZ supports the optimization of the framework conditions for responsible sourcing and the promotion of metallurgy as the "key enabler" of a circular economy.
