Animal nutrition company Adisseo is increasing its production capacity for liquid methionine in Europe by doing a significant extension of the Burgos (Spain) facility.

After completion of the fully integrated Nanjing plant late 2015, Adisseo is now the market leader in liquid methionine. For several years the company has been promoting liquid methionine (HMTBA) amongst feed-millers and integrators all over the world.

The next step in Adisseo development is a significant extension of the Burgos (Spain) facility in order to expand production of liquid methionine according to the needs of its customers. The success of their methionine product* in recent years (+50% since 2013) has fostered the need to accelerate the capacity extension project in Spain.

Adding a third production line in Burgos will increase the site competitiveness in many aspects, making it one of the best of its kind in the industry. The company is also implementing an investment program to upgrade its upstream facility of Les Roches (France) in order to sustain the development of the Burgos site.
