In spring 2016 the top project managers 2015 were awarded with the first “Project Excellence Awards” in the categories Best Growth Project, Best Investment Project, Best R&D/Innovation Project and Best Cost/Performance Improvement in the headquarters in Vienna. We are very pleased, that Mr. André Schmickl has received an award for the Best Investment Project.
Mr. Schmickl, MCC Crushing & Mixing, successfully completed an environmental project together with CTP Chemisch Thermische Prozesstechnik GmbH at the RHI production site in Trieben, Austria. The waste gas from three production lines is combined and passed through a CTP turnkey air pollution control system. The innovative and at the same time economical solution by CTP further minimizes the environmental impact below the statutory limits.
We would like to congratulate Mr. Schmickl for this award and thank him for the excellent cooperation.
