Evonik Plans New Silicone Plant In Northern Germany

Sept. 24, 2018
The new plant will focus on silicone and nanotechnology.

Evonik is reportedly investing a “double-digit million euro amount” in the construction of a new multi-purpose facility at its Geesthacht location in Northern Germany, 30 kilometers outside the city of Hamburg. The new plant is scheduled to begin operating at the end of 2019, according to the company. 

The Geesthacht site, with about 100 employees, will focus on silicone and nanotechnology. The addition- and condensation-curing silicones as well as the silane-terminated polymers are used as binders in adhesives and sealants, electronics and medical applications. Silica-based nanomaterials serve as property-enhancing additives in fiber composites, which are used in the automotive and aerospace industry. 

A facility for filling tank trucks is also being built at the site.
