ESSEN, GERMANY: Evonik Industries and Jiangsu Zhongneng Polysilicon Technology Development Co Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of GCL-Poly Energy Holdings Limited (GCL-Poly), form joint venture for the production of fumed silica and ultra-pure silicon tetrachloride in China. Evonik will hold a 60 per cent share in the joint venture. The plants, which will have an annual capacity of over 20,000 metric tonne, will be built in Xuzhou (Jiangsu Province, China) and are scheduled to start-up operation in 2016. The entire project has yet to be approved by the executive bodies.

“By making the planned investment we are aiming to further strengthen our market position for fumed silica and ultra-pure silicon tetrachloride and to promote growth, particularly in the attractive Chinese market. In GCL we have found a strong partner for this,” said Klaus Engel, CEO, Evonik Industries.
