Evonik Opens Amino Acid Plant in Brazil

Evonik has opened a biotechnological manufacturing facility in the southern Brazilian state of Parana to produce L-lysine, an amino acid used as an animal feed additive. The plant will use locally sourced agricultural products to make some 80,000 tonnes/year of L-lysine, which Evonik markets under the brand name Biolys. The facility, located in the town of Castro at an industrial complex owned by US-based Cargill, is Evonik's first L-lysine production plant in Latin America.

TeamGaebler and Evonik Join Forces to Introduce SpeedFoiler

TeamGaebler and Evonik have joined forces to introduce the new SpeedFoiler, a foiling catamaran. The latest carbon fiber and composite technology make it possible to fly over the water. The specialty chemicals company Evonik offers a broad portfolio of composite and raw materials. These are, for example, sold under the brand names VESTAMIN, VESTANAT, NANOPOX and ROHACELL and such composite applications can be processed in parts of the fiber, in the plastic matrix and the foam core. Furthermore, the company has the necessary raw materials as well as the extensive processing and process know-how. With various raw materials and additives from Evonik, composites are incredibly stable despite their light weight. The SpeedFoiler has the dimensions of a C-class multihull: The length is 7.62 m, and the width is 4.26 m. The mast height is 12 m. The extremely lightweight materials and the revolutionary design of the SpeedFoiler, it will be possible to start races from 1 knot on. The upper wind limit will be around 30 knots. Martin Fischer, an eminently respected multihull and hydrofoil designer, worked on the project. To start with, Roland and Nahid Gaebler will use this boat to participate in some established regattas.
