We help clients to develop appropriate mine closure plans to meet specific project needs and comply with environmental and local requirements. Our services cover mine closure planning, consulting in post-mining liabilities and are based on international standards. 

Any professional mine closure starts with early conceptual closure plans prior to production, periodic updates throughout the mine life cycle and a final decommissioning plan. Due to RWE’s own responsibility as one of the biggest mine operators worldwide, we know exactly when, how and at what risks and costs to prepare for mine reclamation. This makes us the partner of choice for many clients facing mine closure projects.
