ANZAPLAN success stories

In addition, there’s the nice colleagues with whom I meet outside of work”, says a delighted Johanna Stenzel .

Since completing her training, she has been working in the brand new hydrometallurgical pilot plant, assisting in the development of raw materials for energy storage – from cell phones to Audi e-tron. “The implementation of projects, for example the operation of the pilot plant to produce lithium carbonate, is simply ingenious and also highly varied because I gain insights into the production process and the technical processes”, says Magdalena Keilholz. Another thing: she’s the first woman to get a forklift driver’s license at ANZAPLAN!
