Leverkusen is one of the word’s most versatile locations for the chemical industry. More than 5,000 chemicals are manufactured here and, if necessary, disposed of safely. Contaminated hazardous waste is handled expertly at our Bürrig waste management plant, which is far from being just a regional facility.
The 470-hectare Leverkusen site offers excellent opportunities for all kinds of companies – from the chemical and pharmaceutical industries to the high-tech sector. More than 5,000 chemicals and pharmaceuticals are manufactured at CHEMPARK in Leverkusen, mainly nitration and chlorination products, aromatics, fine chemicals and silicon chemicals. Around 30,000 people work here, ensuring that the CHEMPARK skills center keeps on developing. Know-how, efficiency and responsibility are key to the success of this Chemical site.
Environmental protection and safety are considered just as important as cost-effectiveness and product quality. The Leverkusen site’s safety control center is one of the most modern safety facilities in the entire chemical industry. The site also boasts cutting-edge waste management technology. Thanks to its ultra-modern rotary kiln furnace, the Bürrig waste management plant can dispose of contaminated hazardous waste both safely and efficiently – a service that is unrivaled anywhere in Europe.
The Leverkusen site is also located in a part of Germany where both the standard of living and the quality of life are high – in urban and rural areas alike. It is located close to the major Rhineland cities of Cologne and Düsseldorf, which has the largest Japanese community in Germany. Both cities are important media centers and exhibition venues. With international schools and a superb choice of cultural attractions on its doorstep, CHEMPARK has everything a company and its workforce could wish for.
