Evonik plans to invest $176.5 million in Alabama expansion project

MOBILE, Alabama — German specialty chemicals company Evonik announced today that it is launching an expansion project at its Mobile area manufacturing facility that will bolster its animal nutrition business line while also reducing the site’s carbon footprint.

Plans call for Evonik to build a plant at its Mobile County site to produce methyl mercaptan, which is used to manufacture its MetAmino (DL-methionine) product. Methionine is utilized in livestock farming to feed animals in a healthy, efficient, and sustainable manner.

Evonik plans to invest $176.5 million in the Alabama expansion project. The new plant is scheduled to come on stream in the second half of 2024.

“Evonik was one of the first German companies to set up an operation in Alabama, and it’s great to see that its Mobile plant is once again playing a central role in this world-class company’s global growth plans,” Governor Kay Ivey said.
