Drenthe the green chemport of Europe? Absolutely! Traditionally, Drenthe has a strong chemical industry and is at the forefront of innovation. Chemical Cluster Emmen and Southeast Drenthe have been focusing for many years on high-tech development and the production of polymers, composites, fibres and yarns. And with success! Drenthe is part of the demo region for bio-based green chemistry selected by the EU. Emmen itself is the largest industrial centre of the North of the Netherlands. With its 120 hectares, the emmtec Industry & Business Park is one of the largest chemical level 6 sites in the Netherlands and provides perfect access to Germany, Scandinavia and the Baltic States. Rotterdam, Amsterdam and the Groningen Eemshaven are surprisingly nearby. And because education and entrepreneurs work together, Drenthe is the knowledge hub for innovation and applied research into green fibre chemistry. So Drenthe can proudly call itself the green chemport of Europe!
