Ruhrchemie AG - Oberhausen-Holten, Germany

Target Category: Industry - oil refinery
The Ruhrchemie AG chemical company was established in 1927 in the Oberhausen district of Holten. In 1934, it became one of the first plants to use the Fischer-Tropsch process for the production of liquid hydrocarbons which facilitated the production of synthetic fuels. Buildings not destroyed by bombing were dismantles after the war. Today the site is now the headquarters of the company Oxea. (wikipedia)
