From fresh water to process water and back
Much like energy and raw materials, water is also a key factor for chemical production and therefore for the GENDORF Chemical Park. Every day, more than 100,000 m³ are taken from wells and the Alz river, primarily used as cooling water during the production process and then fed back into the Alz river. As a chemical park surrounded by greenery, we feel obligated to treat water and waste water with particular care. In the past, large sums have therefore been invested into water protection, for instance into enormous retention basins, into an improved biological treatment capability with soil aeration, and into the construction of a preliminary sedimentation plant.
