Evonik commissions new Biolys® factory in Brazil

July 20, 2016 |

In Brazil, Evonik has commissioned a new plant for the biotechnological production of Biolys® in the Brazilian town of Castro in the state of Paraná. It will have annual production capacity of around 80,000 metric tons. Biolys® is an efficient source of the amino acid L-lysine and is used as a feed additive in modern animal nutrition. Evonik produces Biolys® on site of the U.S.-based company Cargill, from which it procures site and logistics services as well as locally produced raw materials. Agricultural products from the region are used as the main raw material for the fermentation. The plant will create around 100 jobs for highly skilled workers.
