CHEMIEPARK KNAPSACK
GOOD NEIGHBORLY RELATIONS

Good neighborly relations are built on open dialog and a responsible partnership approach. This is why we focus on active and open dialog with you as citizens, politicians, authorities, associations, media and schools. In this way we assume responsibility for our region, generating interest and understanding for chemicals and technology and thereby ensuring a good working relationship.

In the modern plants at the Chemiepark Knapsack raw materials and products are created which we all use in our everyday lives. In addition, the companies conduct innovative research and development to secure the future of the site in the long term.

It goes without saying that our plants maintain the highest possible safety and environmental standards. In doing so, we meet our responsibility towards you and our employees, as well as the environment we all share. We therefore consistently pursue the goals of the chemical industry's "Responsible Care" initiative, which obligates us to continually improve environmental protection measures, safety and health. You will find important advice for your personal safety here.

Jobs and education

With well over 2,200 jobs and investments totaling around one hundred million euros every year we are committed employers, tax-payers and customers in and for our region. You will find all the information you need about working at the Chemical Industrial Park here.

News

Good neighborly relations also thrive on a regular exchange of information. You will find news on the latest developments at the Chemiepark Knapsack, interesting events or dates for open days at our news section.

Neighbors since 1907

We have been an integral part of Hürth for over 100 years. During this time a trusting neighborhood relationship has evolved, as is reflected in our history.

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.
