A so-called accelerator for start-ups in the field of environmental technologies (Green Tech) will be built on the premises of the FLUXUM Green Tech Park in Gernsheim. At the end of March, the signatures were affixed under the declaration of intent, and now the next step has followed: the scientific and technological company Merck, the Economic and Infrastructure Bank of Hesse (WIBank), the state-owned economic development company Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH (HTAI) and the Technical University of Darmstadt and the Goethe University of Frankfurt have founded an operating company to create and operate the accelerator. The two participating universities will provide for the transfer from science to practice of environmental technology. Cooperation with other universities is planned in the future. The project is supported by a working group in which the ministries of finance, economy, science and digital of Hesse are also involved.

Work on the accelerator is expected to start by the end of this year and, at the beginning of 2025, a purpose-built building that will include a laboratory, technical center and offices will also come into operation. The accelerator aims to support GreenTech industrial start-ups in their technical and commercial development. In addition, it should broker partnerships with investors and large corporations and provide needs-based infrastructure. Established companies should also have the opportunity to develop GreenTech innovations, business models and start-ups.

The offer is aimed at companies that deal with innovative and sustainable issues such as energy efficiency, the circular economy or the mobility solutions of the future. The aim is to make Gernsheim a long-term center for GreenTech in the region and to provide ideal framework conditions for green innovations. Further information: https://www.fluxum-gernsheim.com/
