The Golßen plant was constructed in 1879 by the brothers Paul and Artur Lösche and produced potato starch, dextrin, special adhesives and cooking oil until 1945. In 1991, the Golßener starch plant was taken over by Emsland-Starke GmbH. Since then, extensive investments ranging in the millions have been made to improve the technical expertise and capacity.
Together with the Danish company Aller Aqua Technologies APS, the Golßen plant brought Emsland-Aller Aqua GmbH to life, which was founded in September 2006 and is part of the Emsland Group. The main focus in Golßen is placed on the production of starches and proteins from potatoes and peas. Furthermore 35,000 tons fish feed are being produced annually. The brands Aller Aqua® and Aquavalent® have been marketed very successfully here.
Additional applications include paper, textiles, adhesives and chemical-technical industries. The majority of native starch is processed into dry cationic starches.
A total of approximately 165,000 tons of potatoes and 72,000 tons of peas are processed annually.
