Construction Chemicals - Degussa begins investment drive

14.06.2005


Over 15 million euros for powder production in Europe



Degussa AG, Dusseldorf, is preparing the ground for further profitable growth in its Construction Chemicals Division. The Management Board has given the go-ahead for an investment program in the Construction Systems Europe Business Unit to the tune of over 15 million euros. The investment is to be used over the next three years to further expand the powder production capacities of Degussa Construction Chemicals at five sites in Western and Eastern Europe.

"It means we are consistently exploiting the opportunities in our European growth markets", comments Andreas Köllreuter, Head of the Construction Systems Europe Business Unit, referring to the continued upward business trends in countries such as France, Italy and the Czech Republic. Degussa is already achieving double-digit growth rates in some of these areas - and now it intends to significantly expand and improve its offer once again. Apart from achieving greater proximity to the customer, the priority is to make logistics more efficient, meaning shorter response and transport times when delivering products.

The business unit currently operates production facilities at 13 sites for repair mortars, tile adhesives and grouting mortars. Now, as part of the investment drive, two new sites are to be added, further strengthening the production network. There are also plans to replace an old facility at the Ham site in Belgium with a completely new construction. At the Eastern European facilities the investment drive will concentrate primarily on expanding existing capacities.

As the global market leader in specialty chemicals, Degussa uses its innovative products and system solutions to create something indispensable for its customers’ success. It’s an approach we sum up in our claim of "creating essentials". In fiscal 2004 its 45,000 employees generated sales of 11.2 billion euros, and operating profits (EBIT) of 965 million euros.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
