WCN Editorial Team 21 Oct 2016 ASIA BUILDINGS

Evonik Industries has broken ground on its second DL-methionine plant in Singapore.

The €500M plant will have a production capacity of 150,000t annually.

Evonik sells the amino acid DL-methionine under the MetAmino brand name. The new facility will boost the company’s annual capacity of MetAmino to about 300,000t in Asia, and to about 730,000t across the globe.

Evonik Industries chairman of the executive board Klaus Engel said: "Our methionine complex, which came on-stream in late 2014 on Jurong Island, is a success story. This led to our decision to build a second plant next to it.

"The demand for MetAMINO for animal nutrition is continuing to grow at a very fast rate in Asia."

The facility is anticipated to be operational in 2019, and create more than 150 jobs.
