Evonik starts up new production facility in Shanghai  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Evonik Industries AG (Essen, Germany; www.evonik.com) has opened a new production facility for organic specialty surfactants in the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP) in Shanghai, China. The new facility has an annual capacity of around 80,000 metric tons. The investment volume was in the upper two-digit million euro range. The production uses a number of different technologies, enabling Evonik to offer a broad portfolio of locally manufactured products. These include specialty surfactants from renewable resources that are used in personal care and hygiene products, household cleaning agents, and industrial applications. The production focuses on key product groups such as amphoteric surfactants, amidoamines, esters, alkoxylates and quats. The startup of the new facility has created some 80 new jobs. Evonik already operates a similar plant in Bekasi, Indonesia, mainly serving manufacturers in the personal and household care industries in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
