Evonik Opens Silica Production Facilities


Evonik opened its expanded facilities in Ako, Japan on October 27, 2015, where the company will produce its Sipernat and Carplex lines of specialty silicas. This investment represents around a 50 percent increase in Evonik's Japanese production capacity for their specialty silicas.

“The expansion will allow us to continue providing exceptionally high-quality silica that will support the growth of our customers in sophisticated sectors such as the food, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals industries,” said Andreas Fischer, head of the silica business line within the Resource Efficiency Segment, at the opening ceremonies.
