Evonik cuts ribbon on South Carolina plant
Evonik recently cut the ribbon on its new precipitated silica plant in Goose Creek, S.C., near Charleston.
Evonik recently cut the ribbon on its new precipitated silica plant in Goose Creek, S.C., near Charleston.

The event featured comments from Dr. Harald Schwager, deputy chairman of the Executive Board of Evonik, Dr. Johannes Ohmer, member of the Board of Management, managing director, Resource Efficiency, Mandy Brawley, deputy director, Global Business for South Carolina Department of Commerce, Barry Jurs, a representative from Berkeley County, South Carolina and Ralph Walker of Pacolet Milliken, the owner of the chemical park where the new site was constructed.

The new $120 million plant was built in response to strong demand from the U.S. tire market for precipitated silica. The automotive sector needs highly dispersible precipitated silica for production of tires with improved rolling resistance and better wet grip.

Proximity to key customers was the driving factor in selecting South Carolina for the new site, which will manufacture the recently developed ULTRASIL® 7800 GR silica whose larger specific surface area gives tread compound more rigidity without negatively impacting processability. This makes it particularly suitable for SUV tires, whose main market is the U.S.
