Evonik Industries AG is expanding its range of environmentally friendly plasticizers by starting up a new production plant.
This month the firm started producing the phthalate-free plasticizer 1,2-Cyclohexa dicarboxylic acid diisononyl ester at a plant at the Marl Chemical Park. The phthalate-free plasticizer will be sold under the Elatur CH brand name.
Evonik says investment in the plant, which has a capacity of 40,000 metric tons, was "in the double-digit million euro range."
