Salinen Austria AG, Austria's only salt producer, is taking its millennia-long tradition into the future with major investments and innovative products. Every year, four million cubic metres of brine are extracted at the Altaussee, Hallstatt and Bad Ischl sites, from which 1.2 million tonnes of salt are produced at the saltworks in Ebensee.
