Evonik builds specialty polyamide 12 plant in Singapore

ESSEN, GERMANY: Evonik’s 20,000 metric tonne plant for the production of the specialty plastic polyamide 12 (PA12) in Asia is now entering the final phase. The new plant will be built in Singapore and is scheduled to be completed by 2014. Adding to the capacity of the existing facility in Europe, this second production plant for PA12 in Singapore is designed to substantially increase the availability of the product and its guaranteed delivery. “Our goal in significantly expanding our capacity is to consolidate our leading position for polyamide 12 in the long term,” said Gregor Hetzke, Head of Performance Polymers Business Unit, Evonik.
