We provide theoretical predictions for the direct production of supersymmetric scalar taus at the LHC, taking into account left-right mixing of the stau eigenstates. We find that b-quark annihilation and gluon fusion can enhance the cross sections by more than one order of magnitude with respect to the Drell-Yan contributions. For scenarios with long-lived staus, new possible strategies are outlined to determine the mass and width of the heavy CP-even Higgs boson $H^0$. The presentation will be based in part on the following publication: J.M.Lindert, F.D.Steffen, M.K.Trenkel, JHEP1108, 151 (2011) [arXiv:1106.4005]
