Around 15% of all the chemical products that are produced in the Netherlands come from Delfzijl. After the discovery of gas and salt in the region in the 1950s, Delfzijl became an industrial port with a strong chemical cluster. The chemical companies are linked in a chain and use each other’s products. With the green energy mix provided by wind turbines, solar panels, biomass and hydropower, and the opportunities offered by the agricultural hinterland, Delfzijl is becoming the biobased location in Northwest Europe.

GO FOR GREEN
By 2030, the Eemsdelta will be the most important green seaport and industrial region of the northern Netherlands. The chemicals and recycling industry in Delfzijl is fully bio-based. Thanks to the strong connection between energy and agribusiness in Eemshaven and the bio-based chemicals and recycling cluster in Delfzijl, a single efficient and competitive green seaport complex has been formed.
Government bodies, the corporate sector, knowledge institutes and social organisations all work closely together, which enables the corporate sector and knowledge institutes to adequately meet the demand for know-how, technology and manpower. Together with the excellent accessibility, quality of the living environment and location at the Wadden Sea world heritage site, this makes the Eemsdelta an extremely attractive spot for (new) companies and (new) inhabitants alike.
