The plant is located in Brunsbuttel, Germany, at the confluence of the Elbe River and the Kiel canal, approximately eighty kilometers from Hamburg. This strategic location is close to the main commodity and refinery ports of Hamburg and the Benelux countries, providing competitive sourcing and selling opportunities.
