Verfärbung im Duffesbach


Hürth-Knapsack, 27. Mai 2020, 21:20 Uhr

 

Am 27.05.2020 kam es im Chemiepark Knapsack zu einer unbeabsichtigten Einleitung eines ungefährlichen Farbstoffes in den Duffesbach. Dieser Farbstoff färbt Wasser gelb bis grün.

 

Der Farbstoff ist ungefährlich und wird unter anderem dazu genutzt, um Kanalleitungen auf die Dichtigkeit hin zu überprüfen. Die Einsatzkräfte des Chemieparks Knapsack, der Werkskrisenstab sowie die öffentlichen Einsatzkräfte und Behörden sind informiert.

 

Die Ursachen werden derzeit untersucht.

Der Chemiepark Knapsack bedauert die Unannehmlichkeiten und wird Sie über die weitere Entwicklung informieren.

 

Unser Bürgertelefon ist unter der Telefonnummer 0 22 33 / 48 6001 erreichbar. Weitere Informationen erhalten Sie auch unter www.chemiepark-knapsack.de.

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.
