UNESCO-Welterbe Zollverein, Essen

Mischanlage / Salzlager

The coke oven Kokerei Zollverein was built from 1957 to 1961 in cooperation with the coal mine Zollverein.

Today located on the site is the Salzlager (salt warehouse). Up until the 1980s, this place was used for producing a fertiliser made from ammoniac and acid sulphur.

In a separate mixing facility or Mischanlage, the different coal qualities were mixed so as to achieve the best possible coal composition for the coking process. Since 2001, both the coke oven Kokerei and the coal mine Zollverein are part of the UNESCO world heritage.
