TORONTO (ICIS news)--Chemicals and fertilizer firm Domo Caproleuna has started up a new €30m ($41m) fertilizer transhipment centre at the Leuna petrochemicals hub in Germany’s Saxony-Anhalt state, officials said on Friday.
The new centre would double Domo's hourly loading capacities at Leuna, said company executive Norbert Leetsch. He did not disclose further capacity details.
Saxony-Anhalt’s economic minister Reiner Haseloff said the investment underlined that the state remained attractive for chemical producers, despite the economic downturn.
