Evonik Industries expanding green tire research

Evonik Industries today announced a plan to expand its research facilities dedicated to high-performance green tires at several sites in Germany. At Wesseling, Evonik will add a pilot-scale line for precipitated silica to allow for working with innovative precipitation media. At Rheinfelden, where Evonik is building a new research center for silanes, the company is adding a NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) device, which allows for analyzing complex molecules. Evonik said that the total investment at both sites was in the “mid-single digit million Euros.” This announcement is part of a plan whereby Evonik will invest more than €4 billion in R&D over the next decade.
