CENTER OF EXCELLENCE IGPA Altmark Industrial and Commercial Park

IGPA Altmark Industrial and Commercial Park | Sanner Straße 2 | 39596 Arneburg

Bioenergy site in a green space.


In the middle of the Altmark in the Stendal district, you will find one of Saxony-Anhalt’s largest contiguous industrial and commercial sites – the IGPA Altmark Industrial and Commercial Park Center of Excellence. Mercer Stendal, with its state-of-the-art pulp mill, is one of the site’s global players and also an integral part of the local “green energy” scene: Mercer Stendal produces bioenergy from solid biomass. The source of this energy is biogenic carbon in the wood, which cannot be used to produce bioproducts. This way, we supply our entire energy-intensive production with our own electrical bioenergy and thermal energy.

The Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences is known far beyond Saxony-Anhalt’s borders for its innovative teaching and is an important partner in the region. One of the university’s key aims is to attract international students to its courses and to promote close links between science and business in the Stendal district. The Innovation and Start-up Center BIC Altmark GmbH Stendal helps to provide impetus for both science and business in the Stendal district.

Lothar Riedinger, Mayor of the town of Arneburg


“The attractiveness of the Arneburg Industrial and Commercial Park lies in its good collaboration with global players, hidden champions, small to medium-sized businesses and start-ups. The opportunities for links to practical research at the Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Science are the driving force behind innovation and new developments. Today, several companies are already producing bioenergy. Our vision is to become a bioenergy site with autonomous, bio-based energy production by 2028.”
