Evonik has announced that a new specialty silicones plant in Shanghai, China for production of wide range of organically modified specialty silicones has been successfully started up.
Evonik awarded WorleyParsons China with Detailed Design, Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) of its new silicones plant. Through the effective integration execution model, WorleyParsons’ project execution team in Shanghai, together with the Evonik team, successfully delivered a project that was on schedule, within budget and without a single recordable occupational accident.
The products, which are manufactured in batch processes, are used in, for example, polyurethane, paints, and coatings applications as well as in a variety of industrial applications.
Organically modified specialty silicones form part of specialty additives. This is one of four growth engines in which the Essen-based industrial group sees above-average potential for growth and margins.
