Evonik plans capacity expansion for isophorone products



Published January 17, 2011
Evonik Industries has announced plans to construct a new production plant for isophorone and isophorone diamine. The company reports that a suitable site is currently being sought, and economic and strategic market factors play an important role in this decision. Production is scheduled to start in 2013. The board of management of Evonik Degussa GmbH has now approved the plant project plan.
    
“Isophorone chemistry is a core business for Evonik,” said Klaus Engel, chairman of the executive board of Evonik Industries. “The market for isophorone and its deri atives is growing steadily and proved to be robust even during the economic crisis. That’s why we want to sustainably strengthen our market and technological leadership by capacity expansion.”
 
Evonik currently has production sites in Herne and Marl (Germany), Antwerp (Belgium) and Mobile (Alabama, U.S.).
