Rjukan-Notodden industrial heritage was inscribed on the UNESCO world heritage list July 5th 2015. Entrepreneur and industrial mogul Sam Eyde envisioned a future where he could “Make the waterfalls work for mankinds progress”, and that was the start of what later became Norsk Hydro and a industrial adventure Norway never had seen the likes of. Notodden became ground zero for the first successful industrial production of fertilizer.
