Geleen/The Netherlands – Royal DSM has recently announced that it is future proofing and expanding the capacity of its high-performance materials compounding plant in Evansville, Indiana, USA. With the investment, the company will enhance the site to produce the next generation of advanced materials, including bio-based thermoplastics. The project is expected to be completed in Q3 2021.

The extensive modernisation and expansion of the site is being driven by increasing customer demand for advanced material solutions for electrification, metal replacement and lightweighting in multiple industries. It includes the addition of the latest state-of-the-art production technologies, increasing efficiency and sustainability throughout the facility.

“As demand from our customers for sustainable sources of advanced materials grows, so does our need to invest”, said Jud Gibson, Vice President Commercial Americas at DSM Engineering Plastics. “The expansion of our North American operations helps to ensure we have the right tools to meet this need today and in the future.”

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

Shruti Singhal, President at DSM Engineering Plastics said: “This investment reinforces our focus on North America being a key growth market for our business.
