Central & dynamic

Lusatia is a dynamic economic region and acts as a hub due to its central location in Europe.

"We are realising nothing less than the revolution for green flying in Lusatia. We are backed by the French pioneer HY2GEN and a consortium of partners who want to invest 800 million euros in an unprecedented green refinery here. For the first time, the entire value chain for aviation paraffin is to be certified green. Brandenburg as a green electricity state, the Lusatia Green Area as a green zero-waste industrial park and the enormous expertise of the Lusatia energy region provide the ideal basis for this."

"We are the only solar glass producer in Europe and are firmly anchored in Lusatia. Around 150 years of glass production have shaped the best expertise here. We benefit from this. The investment by our shareholder, the Borosil Renewables Limited Group, confirms the location's advantage. New technologies increase efficiency and production volumes - up to 500 tonnes of solar glass per day! At the same time, emissions are being significantly reduced. As a solar glass supplier and pioneer of green production, this makes us a driver of the energy transition for Europe in two ways."

Siemens Innovation Campus

Lusatian companies have enormously strong expertise in the fields of energy, mechanical & plant engineering as well as plastics & lightweight construction. This is ideally complemented by the very renowned research and science landscape in the region. The Siemens Innovation Campus in Görlitz will combine these skills in a progressive way and thus strengthen the innovative capacity of Lusatia in the long term.

“Our site in Görlitz serves to produce the majority of SKAN’s pharmaceutical isolators for the international market. Continuously growing at high double-digit numbers from the start, through initial scale out and several expansions, the site has taken over a leading role in our supply chain network only a few years after founding on the greenfield. This success is made possible by our great and professional team and excellent business conditions in the Lusatia region.”
