Vacancy Chemical Engineer

With more than 150 different companies, large and small, Chemelot is the largest workplace in the region and one of the engines behind the Limburg economy. The diversity of companies in one location is unique, the way in which they collaborate on the optimization of processes and products too. Once you step into this world, you can literally go in all directions.

The strength of Chemelot is the high degree of integration, the knowledge and expertise of the Campus, the factories and the site services. Chemelot distinguishes itself through its focus on chemicals, performance materials and sustainable materials for a very wide range of applications and markets. As a result, the factories at the Industrial Park and the pilot plants on the Campus can operate efficiently in the field of energy, raw materials and costs.

 This high level of integration and synergy is unique and means that the companies at Chemelot produce competitively. Thanks to energy exchange and recycling, Chemelot is already one of the most sustainable chemical sites in Europe in 2018. At the same time, this interdependence also makes Chemelot vulnerable; we can only remain competitive if none of the factories close.

The combination of Industrial Park and Campus makes Chemelot rare in its kind. Companies such as SABIC, Arlanxeo and DSM develop sustainable products and materials in their research facilities. Think of anti-reflective coatings for solar panels and lightweight materials for the automotive industry. The Campus also houses a lively group of start-ups and (SME) companies, such as Flowid, Isobionics, Pharmacell and Xilloc. There are extensive R & D and pilot facilities for these (SME) companies.
