Chemiepark Lülsdorf

Ideas are born here, and the future of chemistry is created.

Chemiepark Lülsdorf GmbH was founded at the beginning of 2024 as the central player in a dynamic network of chemical parks. We are continuing the site’s more than 100-year success story efficiently and with vision.

Partner companies benefit from our extensive infrastructure, jetties, rail connections, and a network of pipelines, including the ethylene network (a connection to the hydrogen core network is under planning). Our central location in the heart of the Rhineland, in the direct vicinity of Cologne/Bonn Airport (CGN), ensures efficient logistics and access to a pool of well-trained specialists. Various open spaces currently covering over 20 hectares are available for interested companies.

Chemiepark Lülsdorf represents the partner network to the outside world and takes part in the joint active further development. We are the driving force behind the inspiration and creative power of our partners through an innovative and productive workplace. People dedicated to innovation around the molecule.

Integrated community of independent companies

Vision & Mission

Where tradition meets new synergies, the path to the future is paved.

On an area of over 100 hectares, our 500 or so employees manufacture products that are in demand worldwide at many production facilities of the local companies Lülsdorf Functional Solutions GmbH (alcoholates in contract manufacturing for Evonik and potash derivatives) and KFS Biodiesel. These are used by customers in the production of biodiesel, food and pharmaceuticals, among other things.

And just like the chemical industry, Chemiepark Lülsdorf is constantly evolving. The announcement of the construction of a new plant for alcoholate production by Vynova is an example of our constant willingness to innovate. We are currently examining the replacement of the International Chemical Investors Groups (ICIG) electrolysis process and are already setting standards for sustainable chemical products in the form of fuels with the local company KFS Biodiesel.

As a member of the ICIG, we have opened up Chemiepark Lülsdorf to third-party investors – a total of over 20 hectares of open space is available for production. Through new production partnerships and the utilization of raw materials such as ethylene and hydrogen from connected networks, we are also striving for a transformation to sustainable chemical products – for example, supplying the nearby Cologne/Bonn Airport (CGN) with fuels from our park.

Our mission is to create a fully integrated production community of independent companies – and to pave the way for a future-oriented and sustainable chemical industry.
