Degussa to build world’s largest methionine plant in Antwerp
The facility’s current production of methionine, an amino acid largely used in chicken feed, is currently 80,000 tons. The expansion will increase capacity to 150,000 tons a year, making it the largest such plant in the world. It is due to come on-stream by mid-2005.
Degussa also invested 100 million euro in its Antwerp operations in 2002. At the end of last year the company’s Antwerp personnel totaled 1,131 people. The new plant will mean some 90 direct and indirect jobs, with some being filled internally.
