ExxFire starts production at Chemport Innovation Center

11/23/2022 - On Wednesday Deputy IJzebrand Rijzebol of the province of Groningen performed the festive opening of the Chemport Innovation Center (CIC). At the same time, the first tenant, ExxFire, was welcomed. The Chemport Innovation Center offers plenty of space for upscaling, innovation, demonstration and continued growth of industrial activity. It is therefore an important link in the cycle of industrial start-ups.

The old factory on the Groningen Seaports industrial estate in Delfzijl, where the CIC is located, is undergoing a total metamorphosis. The first tenant, ExxFire, signed the lease today. ExxFire is developing a revolutionary method to make valuable spaces fire-safe using unpressurized gas. “Think of critical IT racks in data centers, archives, electrical installations, museums, libraries, depots. Wherever extinguishing water may cause more damage than the fire itself, we offer a solution,” says CEO Harm Botter. ExxFire developed the technology on a lab scale on the Zernike Campus in recent years and is now ready for the upscaling and the jump to the market.
