Welcome to our EEW site Knapsack.

The chemical industrial park in Hurth-Knapsack has existed for more than 100 years, and the location was chosen at the time due to its proximity to inexpensive energy from brown coal. Today the industrial complex still has a large demand for energy, which is now met in an efficient and environmentally friendly manner. The power is generated by the Knapsack energy from waste plant (EBKW) operated by EBS Kraftwerk GmbH, a company belonging to EEW Energy from Waste and YNCORIS GmbH & Co. KG, the operator of the chemical park. Each year, 140,000 megawatt hours of electricity are produced here, securing the energy supplies of the nearby companies without the need for long transport routes. At the plant, 320,000 tonnes of refuse derived fuel (RDF) – specially treated commercial and industrial waste with a very high calorific value – is converted to electricity in a safe, low-emission process.
