Nylon 12 shortage ending, Evonik ready to resume CDT production

By: Frank Esposito

ESSEN, GERMANY (Dec. 4, 3 p.m. ET) — Evonik Industries AG has completed repairs to its nylon 12 feedstock plant in Marl, Germany — less than eight months after a fatal explosion and fire there affected global supplies of nylon 12 resin. Production of nylon 12 feedstock cyclododecatriene (CDT) should resume by the end of the month, and shipments of nylon 12 resin made from CDT produced in Marl are expected to go out in January.
