Evonik Industries has reached halfway point in its move to expand its global capacity for precipitated-silica production, with its capacity to reach a 30% increase in 2014 from its 2010 levels. "With our expansion course, we are keeping pace with the growth of our worldwide key customers in the tire industry. We have aligned our business activities to global megatrends. With our precipitated silicas, which are primarily used in high-quality car tires, we are serving the resource efficiency megatrend," said Thomas Haeberle, company board member.
