    K + S wants to cover the mountain by 2040, greening, widening and increasing by almost 20 meters; An application to the State Office for Mining is being prepared. The chemical company from Kassel has announced 100 to 400 truck journeys a day to the citizens of neighboring villages - for around 20 years! A large part of the cover should consist of rubble, which is loaded with heavy metals such as lead and mercury and other substances of concern.

    As Monte Kali, Kaliberg or Kalimanjaro are colloquially referred to several waste dumps in Germany, which consist of overburden of potash production. They represent an ecological problem because salts and heavy metals are washed out by precipitation and pollute soils, groundwater and surface waters in the environment.

    The future of the mountain is still in dispute. Recently, residents favor again the shipment of the heap underground. However, this does not cost K + S money, but costs it. The "greening" with debris, excavation and slightly contaminated waste would be very lucrative for the company
