Regional Production and Supply

Evonik is a global leader in the production of amino acids for animal nutrition with a strong focus on regional production and supply. We are committed to providing our customers in the Americas with a stable and secure supply of high-quality amino acids. With local production facilities in Castro, Brazil; Blair, Nebraska, USA; and Mobile, Alabama, USA, we offer an excellent distribution network, shorter lead times, and improved sustainability while providing solutions to meet our customers' specific needs. By providing a stable and secure supply of amino acids and specialty products, we are helping to support the growth and development of the animal production sector in the Americas.

Stable Supply Chain and Enhanced Sustainability

Evonik's plant in Mobile, Alabama

Work started in 2022 on the backward integration of Evonik’s methionine hub in Mobile, Alabama

Our commitment to regional production and distribution also means that we can offer a stable supply chain, ensuring that our customers have access to the amino acids they need when they need them. Sustainability is a key differentiator in the industry. Our local production facilities enable us to reduce our carbon footprint, enhancing sustainability and reducing our impact on the environment. We have invested significantly in the backward integration of our plant in Mobile, Alabama and are looking forward to the completion of the project in Q2 2025.  The entire production network will then be fully backward integrated, with each plant saving more than 25,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions each year, bolstering regional supply security and making sustainability gains of 7%.

Evonik‘s backward-integrated plants and use of lower-emission energy sources enable us to provide a more sustainable supply of DL-Methionine. When weighted according to bioavailable methionine content, the carbon footprint of MetAMINO® is approximately 25% lower than the global industry average and 40% lower than the Asian industry average.

Our focus on regional supply and distribution means that we offer a quick and flexible approach to meet our customers' needs.
