About EMMTEC Industry & Business Park

EMMTEC Industry & Business Park is dedicated to manufacturing and chemical enterprises with production processes up to environmental category 6 - heavy industry.

The site has excellent facilities for companies active in the fibers, polymers and composites markets and is the largest of its kind in NW Europe. New developments towards biobased chemicals find a favorable home at site supported by its location in the North of The Netherlands.

For starting or expanding companies EMMTEC Industry & Business Park is the perfect location. Of course the necessary integrated utility infrastructure including industrial waste water treatment, buildings and land is available. Key differentiators are however that we can facilitate companies from the early start of a product idea through pilot plant phase up to full production scale. Several laboratories at site and in the direct vicinity, close cooperation with education and research institutes (StendenPRE, GreenPAC, University Groningen, Wageningen), laboratory, engineering and logistic services at site as well as a very supportive political environment provide for attractive settlement conditions. At site students from universities are educated in special business focused research facilities (StendenLab – Real World Learning).

The EMMTEC industry park and its adjacent area EMMTEC Zuid offers large plots for industrial use. The plots can be bought by our customers. Buildings can be rented or bought by interested parties. The site has excellent road (no traffic jams!) and rail connections to key NW European international harbors (Rotterdam, Hamburg, Antwerp). Integrated international rail/road infrastructure is available at nearby DRYPORT Coevorden/Emmen. All major customer and industrial regions in NW Europe are within a day’s driving distance.

The EMMTEC Industry & Business Park is located in a region where the economic clusters agribusiness, chemicals and energy are highly developed and integrated. The park and its surroundings have an excellent infrastructure to grow and process different biomass feedstock
to chemical feedstock materials.
The site utility production and infrastructure is optimized and integrated to service our customers with the lowest CO2-impact possible. Several unique technical adaptations to our installations support our strategy to ever lower this impact.
The raw materials to produce utilities, primarily natural gas are used as efficiently as possible for example in our cogeneration plant at site (total 60 MWe). Biofuels like biodiesel or biogas are used wherever possible. Moreover biodiesel is supplied by site customer Sunoil. This enables Emmtec to offer sustainable utilities at attractive conditions for the full utility product package.
The industry park is located in one of the economic heartlands of the North of The Netherlands. Support and assistance for interested companies from the national,  regional and local governments is present during the full settlement process. Network organizations like GreenPAC and the chemical and agribusiness clusters give support to newcomers to the area as well.
