To meet rising demand for cyclodextrins used as stabilizers and excipients in drugs, cosmetics, and foods, Wacker Chemie has expanded its plant in Eddyville, Iowa. The firm increased capacity for α- and β-cyclodextrins by 50% and doubled its capacity for γ-cyclodextrins. The $21 million expansion includes new buildings and energy-saving upgrades.
