Evonik opens silica plant in Brazil


On July 20, Evonik Industries announced that it had started up its new precipitated silica plant in Americana (São Paulo) Brazil. The plant focuses on highly dispersible silica used mainly for high-quality, low rolling resistance tires. In addition, the plant will serve various specialty silica segments, including  the food, animal feed, and agricultural industries. Evonik has not disclosed the capacity of the new plant or the total investment, though it did say the project budget was in the “mid-double-digit euro range.”   

In a company press release, Dr. Johannes Ohmer, member of Evonik’s Board of Management of the Resource Efficiency Segment, said: “The new plant in Americana now enables us to offer our products and solutions to our Brazilian and regional customers as well. Thanks to our dependability, outstanding services, and top-quality products, we provide customized solutions.”
