31-Aug-11
Evonik Industries, one of the leading suppliers of methacrylate chemistry, is increasing the production capabilities of its Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) plants throughout the world to meet the rising demand. Evonik will increase production capabilities of Methyl Methacrylate through debottlenecking and plant expansion projects in existing plants in Europe (Worms and Wesseling in Germany), Asia (Shanghai in China), and the United States (Fortier) in 2011 and 2012. Upon completion of the projects Evonik industries will be able to produce approximately 50,000 additional metric tons of MMA. Thomas Müller, Senior Vice President & General Manager Acrylic Monomers, said of the previously announced expansion of the Methyl Methacrylat capacity: "We are reacting timely to support the growth of our customers." Methyl Methacrylate is primarily used for Polymethylmethacrylate resins and surface coatings.
