Evonik to divest Lülsdorf site in medium term


Evonik intends to divest its Lülsdorf site in the medium term. More detailed plans will be drawn up by spring 2022. The aim is to transfer the entire site to a new owner, although the sale of parts of the business to various interested parties will also be considered. Various potential investors have already expressed interest in the chemical site.

Evonik employs almost 600 people at the site, which is south of Cologne. It mainly produces alkoxides, potassium derivatives and - in association with plants in neighboring Wesseling - cyanuric chlorides. The business at the Lülsdorf site belongs to the Functional Solutions business line, which is part of the Performance Materials division. For more information, click here.
