The open-pit mining Vereinigtes Schleenhain is located south of Leipzig and comprises the working areas Schleenhain, Peres and Groitzscher Dreieck.
Due to several storm-like gusts of wind in April and Mai 2014 the pollution by coal dust rose unusually in the surrounding municipalities.
For this reason the Mitteldeutsche Braunkohlegesellschaft (Mibrag) GmbH has spread a mixture of iGGvital HM wood fiber mulch, cellulose and a soil stabilizer from a helicopter on more than 123.5 acres of operational area in May 2014.
14,000 liters of this special mixture were sprayed per acre. The surface remains water permeable. The liquid mixture was prepared directly on the jobsite with a Finn T170 HydroSeeder sold by the Internationale Geotextil GmbH and then applied immediately.
