About the Raffinerie Heide GmbH:

Raffinerie Heide GmbH is Germany’s most northerly crude oil processor. Crude oil has a long tradition in Schleswig-Holstein, because for more than 150 years now, oil chalk and later on crude oil have been extracted and processed in Dithmarschen.

On an area covering 136 hectares, the company processes ca. 4.5 million tons of crude oil each year. Around 80 percent of the petrol and diesel fuel used in the region comes from Raffinerie Heide GmbH. The jet fuel produced there powers most of the flights that depart from Hamburg airport. The heating oil delivered by the refinery is sufficient to power the oil-fired heating systems of 250,000 homes between Flensburg and Hamburg.

Nearly 70 percent of the crude oil is used to produce fuel. But Raffinerie Heide GmbH is also a chemicals company. In addition to the production of fuel, each year around 450,000 tons of petrochemical products are produced in the refinery in Hemmingstedt. And these intermediate products are used by other processing industries in Germany to manufacture detergents, fertiliser, tyres and synthetic materials.
