Evonik has commissioned the second complex for its feed additive - MetAMINO® (DL-methionine) at Singapore’s Jurong Island, recently. The new plant is located adjacent to its old plant at the island and will have an annual production capacity of 150,000 metric tons of DL-methionine raising its global capacity to about 730,000 metric tons. The first plant already has a capacity of 150,000 metric tons of DL-methionine.
Built at a cost of half a billion euros, the new complex is modelled on the successful existing plant on Jurong island. As Asia has a growing demand for animal protein - meat, eggs, milk and fish producers are increasingly focusing on more sustainable production, and the new feed additive plays a key role in supporting these efforts.
The feed additive - DL-methionine is an essential amino acid that is added to poultry and pig feed. It helps to reduce the crude protein content in the feed which is beneficial for animal organisms while also reducing the impact on the environment. The feed additive offers a sustainable supply of animal protein for the world’s growing population.
Apart from Singapore, Evonik produces the feed additive at its plants in Antwerp (Belgium), Wesseling/Cologne (Germany) and Mobile (Alabama, USA).
