Evonik to Build Specialty Copolyester Plant in Germany

Evonik Industries AG, Essen, Germany, is building a new production plant for specialty copolyesters at its Witten site in Germany. The company is investing a mid-double-digit million euro sum in the plant, which will have annual production capacity of several thousand metric tons.

The project is on track to reach mechanical completion by end of November 2017. Following the successful Mechanical Completion the commissioning phase will be commenced and commercial operation is planned to start in Q1/2018.

As binders for paints, specialty copolyesters are used in coil coatings and, increasingly, in food can coatings. Polyester-based coatings are perceived as a good alternative to substitute the standard epoxy based coating systems to ensure a bisphenol-a-free food packaging. Evonik has early on anticipated this trend and decided at the end of 2015 to invest in additional capacity to be well prepared to accompany further growth in this market.
