Evonik Commissions New Chlorosilane Plant

24.10.2011 -

Evonik Industries has commissioned a new plant in the town of Sinich in northern Italy for the production of high-purity Siridion chlorosilanes. Evonik supplies the chlorosilanes to a neighboring production plant owned by MEMC Electronic Materials Company for producing ultra-pure silicon.

Evonik and MEMC are reinforcing a long-term partnership. Evonik has already supplied the MEMC site in Sinich with chlorosilanes for about 30 years. With the new plant, this close cooperation will now continue locally, the company said.
