Evonik Will Shut Carbon Black Plant

Department: Business

Evonik will cease carbon black production at its Aransas Pass, Texas, unit at the end of 2008, after which the site will serve as a warehouse. Evonik says it is investing in its other, more efficient North American carbon black plants to better compete in a business "dominated by volatile raw material and high energy costs." About 30 of 38 positions at the Texas site will be cut.
