Evonik Industries plans to construct an additional plant complex in Singapore. The facility, which will produce the amino acid DL-methionine for animal nutrition, will have an annual production capacity of 150,000 metric tons and is expected to start operations in 2019, according to the company. Evonik sells DL-methionine under the brand name MetAMINO.

Evonik’s most recent methionine plant began operating in Singapore in the fourth quarter of 2014 after a two-year construction period. In its new, backward-integrated production complex, Evonik will also produce all associated relevant precursors.

The new complex is planned next to the existing Evonik methionine plant on Jurong Island in Singapore.
