SPORTS AND SOCIAL LIFE
WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO US

We have a long tradition of promoting culture and sports. Sports clubs such as the Tennis Club Knapsack and the Sailing Club Knapsack are unimaginable without the personal involvement of many employees. The Große Knapsacker Karnevals-Gesellschaft also emerged from the close cooperation between neighbors and many members of the companies.

Today we continue to support the social and sporting activities of our employees as well as promoting social facilities, aid organizations and associations in the neighborhood.

When it comes to culture and the arts, our companies on site regularly support cultural events, as well as traditional and musical groups from Hürth. They form an integral part of the colourful music and theater program offered in the Feierabendhaus.

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.
