Evonik Industries has held the ground-breaking ceremony for the new production plants for the manufacture of isophorone and isophorone diamine in the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP). The Group is investing more than EUR 100 million in the plants, which are scheduled to come on stream in the first quarter of 2014, after completion of a roughly two-year construction phase. Products from the new facilities will primarily serve markets in China and Asia Pacific, with an annual capacity of 50,000 tons.

"The new isophorone and isophorone diamine facilities shall expand our current capacity, strengthen our position in the market and drive the coating, adhesive, construction and composites industry to the next level in Asia”, said Dr. Ulrich Küsthardt, Head of the Coatings & Additives Business Unit. The company currently manufactures isophorone chemistry products in Herne and Marl, Germany, Mobile, Alabama, USA as well as in Antwerp, Belgium.  

In addition the company is installing a new Technical Service Center at its Xinzhuang site in Shanghai. The facility will include state-of-the-art laboratories for applied technology with aims to develop isophorone product applications and provide technology service for customers throughout in the region.
