Evonik Industries and RusBiotech International, Russia, have established the joint venture Russkie Biotechnologii for manufacturing L-lysine in Russia by means of a biotechnological process. L-lysine is an amino acid for animal feed that Evonik markets under the brand name Biolys®.

The total investment of the joint venture will come to around €150 million. The plant is slated to go on line in 2014 in Volgodonsk in Russia’s Rostov region and convert approximately 300,000 metric tons of wheat grown in the Rostov region into Biolys® each year.

Evonik is the only company in the world to produce and market all four essential amino acids that are used in advanced animal nutrition: Biolys® (L-lysine), MetAMINO® (DL-methionine), ThreAMINO® (L-threonine), and TrypAMINO® (L-tryptophan).
