Chemport Europe – Changing the nature of chemistry

Chemport Europe

Chemport Europe is the incubator for green chemistry. It meets all the conditions that enable the sustainable chemistry of the future to develop and flourish.

Chemport Europe offers a dynamic ecosystem for companies committed to a greener chemical sector. Bordering the North Sea, Chemical Cluster Delfzijl has direct access to sea, inland shipping, the motorway infrastructure of Northwest Europe, and railroad. The Eemsdelta owes this strong position in part to its location in a rural setting, the presence of two seaports, and relevant knowledge institutes with a Nobel Prize winner for Chemistry in 2017. Moreover, the production and landing of a large amount of green electricity and green raw products are all integrated into this chemical cluster.

With a green energy mix provided by wind turbines, biomass, solar panels and hydropower, and the opportunities offered by the agricultural hinterland, Chemical Cluster Delfzijl is the best biobased location in Northwest Europe.

Chemport Innovation Center

As a promotor of green chemistry, the Chemport Innovation Center in Delfzijl helps scale-ups and chemical and innovative companies to advance their sustainable ideas and technologies.

Chemport Innovation Center, scaling up green chemistry

Chemport Innovation Center (CIC) is actively involved in sustainable innovation in the Chemport region. It has an equipped location in the middle of the Delfzijl industrial area where start-ups and scale-ups can rent space to test their innovations in the demonstration phase (TRL-6/7/8 level ) safely, quickly and efficiently. CIC has the networks, knowledge and permits needed to successfully guide the development to the final market launch phase (TRL-9 level). This is the final phase in which the technology has become marketable, and the scale-up is ready to settle in the Delfzijl/Eemshaven region.

Why CIC?

      • Test room tailored to your needs
      • Full focus on your pilot
      • Permit already arranged
      • Networking with other (chemical) companies
