Evonik: Planning of a Large-Scale Plant in Alabama

Evonik Industries AG, Essen, Germany, is starting basic planning for a new methyl methacrylate (MMA) production plant using the Aveneer process at its Mobile site in Alabama, USA.

The capital expenditure involved will be in the three-digit million EUR range. The large-scale plant, with a production capacity of 120,000 metric tons, is expected to come on stream in the middle of 2015 and will create up to 100 jobs in Mobile. The overall project is awaiting the approval of the relevant bodies.

Methacrylate monomers and their derivatives are the starting materials for innovative products for resource-efficient solutions, as for example in lightweight construction in the automotive industry.

Mobile, USA, was chosen as the site for the first MMA plant to use the new Aveneer process. The location of the site on the Gulf of Mexico also allows delivery by sea to customers all over the world.
