Recently, the foundation stone for a new production plant for wax and polymer emulsions was laid in Elsteraue / Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.

The family-owned company Münzing is investing a medium double-digit million EUR amount to start production at the Zeitz Chemical and Industrial Park, Europe's largest integrated site of the corporate group, at the end of 2021. Münzing already operates a plant in Elsteraue for the production of wax products in powder form.

Products for the construction industry and architectural paints

After completion, the new plant with the latest technical equipment will produce water-based wax emulsions and other special additives such as defoamers in powder form on an area of over 20,000 m2. The products will be used mainly in the construction industry and for architectural paints and, according to the company, will contribute significantly to better processing and durability of plasters, exterior and interior paints in construction. 

In addition to the complete networking of production, logistics and infrastructure via process control systems to form an "intelligent factory", great importance was attached during the planning of the plant to the most energy-saving design possible. This includes its own combined heat and power plant, in which environmentally friendly electricity and heat are generated, and a sophisticated system for recovering energy in all heating and cooling processes. In comparison to conventional plant technology, up to 50% of CO2 emissions are to be saved in this way.
