Evonik Industries has spent several million dollars to build a demonstration plant in Ratchaburi, Thailand, for the sugar substitute isomalt. The German firm teamed up with Rajburi Sugar, one of Thailand’s main sugar producers, for the project. The plant showcases an Evonik hydrogenation catalyst that improves the efficiency of the process, according to the firm. Type 2 diabetes, often associated with sugar consumption, now affects about 10% of Asians, Evonik notes.
