DSM stopped its citric acid manufacturing plant in China

DSM, today announces the closure of its citric acid manufacturing plant in Wuxi (China) by Q1 2009. (According our information the factory has stopped with production already)
The closure follows a request from the local government to relocate the plant from its current location as this location is needed for future urban developments.
DSM will receive a compensation amount from the Wuxi government and does not expect to incur a book loss. A good social plan is being prepared for the several hundred people who will be affected by the closure. DSM has decided not to rebuild the capacity elsewhere but concentrate its production at the site in Tienen (Belgium), In Belgium the old method of surface fermentation is used.
