Low Carbon and Nitrate in Ammonia and Urea production. Two hot topics for Steel and Ammonia production together with Stamicarbon and ArcelorMittal. Pure CO2 as a high quality raw material for producing high quality additive energy carriers. INITIATE, a Stepwise project H2020

A new milestone in our initiative for Carbon-capture.

Together with our partners in Fresme, a H-2020 EU-project, we managed to make methanol from the captured CO2 (purity > 99%). At this moment we are joining several H-2020 projects for a more sustainable and green future. In these projects is Kisuma bv responsible for the adsorbent in the SeWGS, a TNO-owned technology platform for the steelindustry, refineries and powerindustry. See for more information: www.fresme.eu, www.initiate.eu, www.stepwise.eu. Or contact our office in Veendam.



Kisuma Chemicals is onderdeel van het in Japan gevestigde “Kyowa Chemical Industry”. Sinds 1999 is Kisuma gevestigd aan de Billitonweg in Veendam. Op deze locatie worden de synthetische magnesiumverbindingen “Hydrotalciet” en “Magnesiumhydroxide” geproduceerd. Deze zogenaamde “hydrotalcieten” worden gebruikt als zuurvangers in de kunststofindustrie. Magnesiumhydroxide wordt als brandvertrager toegepast in kunststoffen.

Na de opening in 1999 is de locatie diverse malen uitgebreid. Momenteel beschikt Kisuma Veendam over een productiecapaciteit van circa 30.000 ton op jaarbasis. Hiermee is het de grootste productielocatie van synthetisch hydrotalciet ter wereld. Op de locatie in Veendam werken 100 medewerkers en wordt 7 dagen per week, 24 uur per dag geproduceerd.

Sinds 2008 valt Kisuma onder het “Besluit Risico Zware Ongevallen” ofwel het BRZO. Het BRZO is de Nederlandse implementatie van de Europese SEVESO III richtlijn. Binnen Nederland vallen circa 400 bedrijven onder deze richtlijn. Kisuma valt onder deze richtlijn vanwege een bepaalde hoeveelheid van een milieugevaarlijke grondstof. Voor de BRZO-bedrijven is een aparte inspectiemethodiek opgesteld. Dit betekent dat periodiek multidisciplinaire inspectieteams de locatie bezoeken. Voor meer informatie over BRZO kunt u op de landelijke BRZO-website bezoeken (www.BRZOPlus.nl). Op deze website staan tevens de openbare inspectieverslagen van alle BRZO bedrijven, waaronder de verslagen van Kisuma.

Kisuma streeft na om een goede buur in de omgeving te zijn. Zodoende stellen wij feedback vanuit de buurt zeer op prijs. Dergelijke feedback kan via het contactformulier op deze website worden verstuurd.
