Evonik commissions second complex for MetAMINO®

On June 18, 2019, Evonik officially commissioned its second complex for the production of MetAMINO® (DL-methionine) and strategically important precursors in Singapore.

Each plant has an annual production capacity of 150,000 metric tons of DL-methionine elevating Evonik’s annual global capacity to approximately 730,000 metric tons. The new complex has been modeled on the successful existing plant and has been constructed right next to it. In total, Evonik has invested more than half a billion euros in the new complex and has created more than 100 additional jobs at the site.

Evonik produces MetAMINO® in world-scale plants in Antwerp (Belgium), Wesseling/Cologne (Germany), Mobile (Alabama, USA), and in Singapore. This global production network ensures the highest supply security for its customers.

DL-methionine is an essential amino acid which must be ingested as part of healthy nutrition.

The scientifically proven products and services offered by Evonik in the animal nutrition sector play a key role worldwide in the manufacture of healthy and affordable foods while preserving natural resources and help to reduce the industry’s ecological footprint. “Sciencing the global food challengeâ€? – that’s the Evonik Animal Nutrition commitment.
