DSM

DSM’s vitamin manufacturing site in Sisseln

Royal DSM (Heerlen, the Netherlands; www.dsm.com) announced that it will reduce its CO2 emissions at its vitamin production facility in Sisseln, Switzerland, by 50,000 tons/year through a newly opened biomass heat and power plant on the site. The power plant was built, is owned and will be operated and maintained by energy company ENGIE and Swiss energy provider ewz.

The biomass power plant supplies steam to the production facility of DSM Nutritional Products in Sisseln and other non-DSM production sites. The renewable electricity – enough to power 17,500 local households – is fed into the public grid. The plant will generate 267 GWh of steam and 42 GWh of renewable electricity per year and will be one of Switzerland’s largest and most efficient biomass power plants.

Chris Goppelsroeder, President & CEO DSM Nutritional Products said: Our site in Sisseln in Switzerland is considered the largest vitamin manufacturing site in the world. We are successfully competing globally thanks to our technology, our well-trained employees and the political stability this country provides. This investment in sustainability further enhances the site’s profile by significantly reducing our CO2 footprint – a key priority for DSM”.
