INCREASE ENERGY EFFICIENCY
At GETEC, sustainability is a high priority. We strive to increase the energy efficiency of the GETEC PARK.EMMEN and reduce the CO2 footprint of the park. We do this by further increasing the current conversion efficiency. For example, by recovering residual heat and using it again at the park; we have been doing this for decades. Or on the fuel side by using green gas. In addition, we are a motivator and booster of the hydrogen economy. This involves converting electricity into hydrogen.
As far as we are concerned, hydrogen will be flowing through the pipes instead of gas in the near future. There are now 21,000 solar panels with a capacity of 8.2 MW on our roofs. We are working out plans to fit even more unused roof areas with solar panels.
CRADLE OF THE POLYMER REVOLUTION
The plastics and polymers industry is on the move. CO2 reduction, digitalisation and an ever-faster changing value chain play a decisive role in strategic decisions and in the future development of companies. In addition to efficiency, sustainability is of great importance. This requires partners who can provide the full range of high-level support services efficiently and economically.
GETEC PARK.EMMEN, the largest industrial production area in the northern Netherlands, has extensive and comprehensive facilities. Various multinationals, such as DSM, Teijin, Freudenberg and BASF, are running their innovative production lines at the park.
The specialisation in the production and recycling of plastics and the vision on high-quality applications of (bio) polymers make this location unique.
The extremely favourable location with direct access to the (motor) road network and the railway offers the multi-client site in Emmen an optimal environment for internationally active companies involved in innovation and production in the fields of chemistry, food and (heavy) manufacturing.
GETEC PARK.EMMEN also offers approximately 25 hectares of available building land with an ideal logistic location. There are various lots available immediately.
