We are not alone...

In addition to its business activities, the DEBAG Group also takes its role in society seriously by lending support to projects and institutions in the broader community.



Flood Control

In 2012, DEBAG AG launched its first-ever flood control project. Working in collaboration with the IPQ Institute, research and development began on flood protection measures that use innovative mineral sealing materials with integrated fiber optic sensors. The project aims to develop novel types of water barriers that can provide automated online monitoring of dikes and levees by incorporating the same sort of glass fibers used in telecommunications technology. 

Biological Oil Barrier

In 2013, DEBAG AG launched its second project in the form of a joint research project aimed at developing a novel process for sequestering crude oil on surface waters. Development is based on new types of clay materials with special properties for combatting oil spills on inland waterways and at sea. The special structure of this newly developed, organic granulate ensures maximum environmental regeneration in a short period of time. 


The research projects undertaken by DEBAG AG are based on the mineral properties found in clay.

The DEBAG Group owns mineral deposits in northern Germany. These deposits and the raw materials they contain were extensively investigated by experts and have been analyzed and verified by state-certified consultants. This analysis was corroborated by the Technical University of Berlin in 2013.

Raw Materials

Along with a variety of raw materials, the enormous amount of clay contained in these deposits constitutes the most important component for our research and development efforts.
