Wacker breaks ground

Wacker Chemie has symbolically broken ground for a new 23,000 m2 silicones plant at its site at Karlovy Vary, Czechia. The investment volume “is in the low triple-digit million-euro range”, the company said. When fully operational, it will make around 20,000 tonnes/year. The facility will produce customised room-temperature-curing silicones for applications including electromobility, health and medical care, and electricity grid expansion when the first phase is complete at the end of 2025. High-consistency silicone will also be produced from 2028.
