Wacker Chemie AG and Dow Corning Corporation have officially started the construction of the second phase of their pyrogenic silica plant in Zhangjiagang, China. The pyrogenic silica plant, together with a siloxane plant, is a key facility of an integrated silicone manufacturing site developed by both companies at Jiangsu Yangtze River Chemical Industrial Park in Zhangjiagang to produce materials used extensively in industries including construction, beauty and personal care, power and automotives. The overall nameplate capacity for both siloxane and pyrogenic silica, including the second phase silica plant, is expected to be approximately 210,000 metric tons per year. Both companies own manufacturing plants for finished silicone products at the Zhangjiagang site. Marketing and sales are undertaken independently by each company.
