Evonik Industries recently announced it is building a new production plant for polymer dispersants at its Goldschmidtstrasse site in Essen, Germany. The company is reportedly investing an amount in the double-digit-million-euro range and is tripling its global capacity for polymer dispersants. Plans call for startup in the first quarter of 2015.

“The product group of polymer dispersants is developing in an extremely attractive way,” said Ulrich Küsthardt, Ph.D., head of the Coatings and Additives business unit. “With our expanded capacity, we want to serve this growing market.”
