The chemical site is characterized by two major product lines; naphtha/gasoil through hydrocarbons to plastics and natural gas through ammonia to organic and specialty chemicals. Around these lines several opportunities for co-siting have been realized and are still available. A full scale utility platform, waste water purification, the permit structure and other industrial services lead to a low cost and efficient production site. With research facilities the open Campus supports accelerated business growth for both running business and start-ups. Chemelot offers these opportunities also to new investors, which fit in the Chemelot profile. Chemelot is a department of DSM Nederland B.V.
