Chemical industry / laboratories

The chemical industry has enjoyed a firmly established place in the Industrial Park Walsrode (IPW) for more than 200 years.

The takeover of Wolff Walsrode AG by The Dow Chemical Company in 2007 underpins the Industrial Park’s standing as a center for specialty chemicals as it became the principal unit and center of excellence in cellulosics within the Dow Group.

In particular for small and medium-sized chemical and laboratory operations the existing facilities, modern infrastructure and well-organized logistics offer attractive start-up options und development scope. On-site expertise and therefore interesting business links include:

• Research cooperation / joint projects with universities (specifically in the field of renewable resources)
• Polysaccharide center
• Polymer characterization
• Sugar oligomers
• Analytics
• Scale-ups
