The Leipzig Region is part of the "chemical triangle" agglomeration in Central Germany.

At the Böhlen plant, Dow basic plastic materials such as ethylene, acrylates, butadiene and aniline, and styrene and hydrocarbon resins are produced.

In addition, the company operates the ValuePark on-site and in Schkopau. This chemical park for plastics producers, plastics processing companies and chemical-related service providers is now home to 27 national and international companies from the fields of production and logistics, raw material supplies and research and technology services.

Thanks to Böhlen Chemical Park’s connection to the existing hydrogen pipeline network, the available space is also ideally suited for hydrogen companies. For example, the global corporation Air Liquide [external link] operates a production facility for technical gases here. The hydrogen pipeline runs from Zeitz via Böhlen, Leuna, Schkopau and Bitterfeld-Wolfen to Rodleben.

ValuePark provides comprehensive services and optimal infrastructure, offering excellent conditions for investors interested in a long-term and cost-effective production site.
