The DTTG was founded on 28 March 1972 in Kiel from a working group "Clay minerals" at this time funded by the German Research Foundation DFG. The DTTG is a society registered in Germany under ĄGerman clay and clay minerals group" at the registry office Cologne. The DTTG is the community of clay researchers and users particularly from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The society business is led by the executive committee. At least every two years a meeting of the members takes place. The society pursues exclusively and directly non-profit purposes.
