Salt is currently still being extracted from the ground in Enschede and Hengelo, but that supply is running out. Another year or two and then it will be over, reports Nobian. New caverns are needed to allow the salt production and the factory to continue in Hengelo. As quickly as possible and with a view to efficiency and sustainability as close as possible to Hengelo. “In Twente there are no realistic options for Nobian to extract salt other than in Haaksbergen, and without salt extraction there is no future for the Nobian salt factory in Hengelo,” the company warns the ministry.
