CHEMIEPARK KNAPSACK
A SITE WITH A LONG TRADITION

The chemical production site on Knapsack Hill has been an integral part of Hürth for over 100 years. It is more than just an important place of work for numerous people and companies from the surrounding area. At the Chemiepark Knapsack raw materials are made for many products which you use on an everyday basis. Research and development are conducted here for our future and young people trained for skilled jobs.

We see ourselves as a reliable partner for our employees and neighbors. Naturally, this includes an open dialog with citizens, associations, politicians, media and schools. As the site operator we concern ourselves with keeping operations running smoothly at the chemical industrial park. Our experts support the companies on site with customized services where required.

The focus of our actions is always on partnership and a good working relationship, thus ensuring that the Chemiepark Knapsack is a gain for everyone involved. This is our goal and our driving force.

ENERGY SUPPLY

The reliable and economical supply of sufficient energy is one of the most important prerequisites for the chemical industry. The chemical park operator InfraServ Knapsack provides the manufacturing companies with the necessary energies in the form of electricity and process steam.

The continuous main load of the energy supply is borne by the refuse-derived fuel (RDF) power plant of E.ON Energy from Waste, where up to 300,000 tons of refuse-derived fuel are thermally utilized every year. This service is complemented by the combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant of the Norwegian energy company Statkraft. With 800 MW of installed capacity it is one of the largest CCGT power plants in Germany. A further combined gas turbine power plant with capacity of 400 MW is currently under construction. The energy supply of the Chemiepark Knapsack is thus guaranteed, also at peak load time.
