Important impetus for structural development in Lusatia
Jörg Steinbach, Economics and Energy Minister of the State of Brandenburg, says: “In order to achieve the climate protection goals, a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is necessary in all sectors and branches of industry. Carbon-neutral hydrogen and the production of green kerosene can become important elements in the mobility sector . The realization of such an innovative project can provide important impetus for structural development in Lusatia and further strengthen the energy state of Brandenburg as a technology and business location.”
“Green hydrogen and above all green kerosene (SAF) are indispensable for the decarbonization of aviation, especially for long-haul flights. We are pleased to have found a strong partner in the region in Euromovement to work with us on this project and to produce aviation fuel at the former airfield in Jänschwalde,” says Matthias Lisson, Managing Director of Hy2gen Germany.
Jochem Schöppler, Managing Partner of Euromovement, adds: “With Hy2gen’s investment decision, the Green Areal Lausitz project has found the right investor, because this company, with its claim and philosophy, supports the concept of an ecological industrial park one hundred percent.” Schöppler especially thanks at the municipality of Jänschwalde for their efforts to enforce a siding for the ecological industrial area. Because, according to Schöppler: “Without the determination of the community, the establishment of Hy2gen would not have been possible.”
“After a long, uncertain future, a star of hope is now shining in the future sky for the former Jänschwalde-Drewitz airfield. After the first investor, energy4future, made the location decision , H2gen AG has now also decided on this location. Thanks to the commitment of Euromovement , I am delighted to see that the extraordinary cooperation is bearing fruit. An industrial area will be created, called GRAL, which as a pioneer meets the demands of today’s modern society and is an important part of the industrial transformation towards a consistently sustainable one production, contributes. I find it regrettable that there has so far been little sign of a corresponding commitment on the part of our state government. The industrial area is an important part of our future and I am grateful for the transparency of the Euromovement and I hope that further investors will be found in the foreseeable future. The municipal council is doing everything possible to pave the way for interested investors to settle there,” says Helmut Badtke, Mayor of Jänschwalde
The Jangada project represents the connecting platform and is open to expansion both through individual new partners and to connections with other projects.
