Evonik Opens Plant Expansion in Thailand
Publisher: Published:2014/5/8 Read:17214bout

On March 19, 2014, Evonik announced Evonik opened its expanded production for precipitated

silica in Rayong, Thailand in a festive ceremony earlier. With this investment, Evonik

increased its capacity for precipitated silica for the automotive industry, food and animal

feed industry as well as the paints and coatings industry.
   “Expanding our manufacturing footprint in South East Asia, Australia & New Zealand

highlights our commitment to this region and allows us to better serve regional markets

with state-of-theart products and optimum solutions,” described Peter Meinshausen,

Regional President South East Asia, Australia & New Zealand.
   Used in the tire and rubber industry, the combination of silica with silanes enables

tire manufacturers to produce tires of much lower rolling resistance, thus reducing the

overall fuel consumption by up to eight percent compared to traditional tires.
   “With this expansion, we are strengthening our operations in Thailand,” explained Dr

Florian Kirschner, Managing Director and Country Head Thailand. “This allows us to respond

more quickly to changes in market demand and supply high quality products to our customers.


   The silica production, now a joint venture between Evonik Industries and Oriental Siam

Company, was founded in 1990. Evonik came on board as majority shareholder taking charge of

operating this Map Ta Phut site in 1999. This expansion, using Evonik’s latest technology,

comprised enhancements of the production process to ensure highest levels of safety,

productivity, and quality of the overall production.
   Evonik is one of the leading manufacturers of silica. In addition to precipitated

silica, Evonik also produces AEROSIL. fumed silica and silica-based matting agents under

the ACEMATT. brand. These are used in tires with low rolling resistance as well as in the

paints and coatings industry, as flow additives and carriers in food, cosmetics and drug

production, or in manufacturing silicon applications, among others. Overall, Evonik has a

global capacity of around 500 000 metric tons per annum for precipitated, fumed silica, and

matting agents.
