Following a two-year construction period, Evonik officially commissioned its second complex for the production of MetAMINO® (DLmethionine) and strategically important precursors in Singapore.

Officiating the opening ceremony as guest-of-honour was Singapore Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat.

With the addition of the second plant, which is located next to the first, Evonik's annual global capacity of DL-methionine rises to 730,000 tonnes. The company has invested more than half a billion euros and created more than 100 jobs in the new complex.

"Synergies from the infrastructure that we set up in 2014, the complete backward integration of both plants into the precursor products, and the joint operation of the entire complex will bring about significant structural efficiency gains," said Christian Kullmann, chairman of the executive board of Evonik, during the opening festivities.

Growing consumer affluence in Asia and the increasing focus on sustainable food production by producers were cited to drive methionine demand.

"Evonik's commitment to Singapore has a long and good tradition. With this additional facility on Jurong Island, we will further strengthen our competitive position as a market leader in the region," added Peter Meinshausen, regional president of Evonik Asia Pacific South.
