TORONTO (ICIS)--Russia’s Titan Group plans to build a biotechnology and chemical complex at Omsk in Siberia, a chemical engineering firm said on Friday.

Germany’s M+W Group, which this week won a contract to plan the project, said Titan would develop plants for the manufacture of amino-acids to make vitamins, organic acids, biologically active additives and pesticides.

At a later stage, the production of biopolymers was also on the cards, M+W said.

The German firm said it had won an order for the initial planning phase “to establish the foundations for further project realisation”.

The contracting partners were Titan Group and the governor of Omsk, it added.  

M+W did not release details about capacities at the complex and the amount being invested, or dates relating to construction and the start-up of production.

Titan Group is involved in chemicals, metallurgy and the agro-industry
