In February 2024, Evonik Coating Additives will exhibit TEGO® Foamex 16 and TEGO® Foamex 11, its latest defoamers, at the American Coatings Show 2024. The event is scheduled for April 30 to May 2 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. These newly developed additives are aimed at enhancing the sustainability and performance of water-based architectural paints.

This practice is seen this February 2024 when Evonik increases its consumption of green power from renewable sources. The specialty chemicals firm has finally concluded a long-term deal with RWE, an energy firm. According to this Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), Evonik is bound annually to receive up to 37.5 gigawatt hours (GWh) of renewable electricity generated by RWE’s North Sea “Kaskasi” offshore wind farm. Numeric-wise, it can satisfy the energy needs of more than ten thousand individual households and also save about sixteen thousand five hundred tonnes of CO2/year in Germany´s electricity supply alone, which is enough quantities required in all these homes burning wood or charcoal within one year. This pact moves Evonik closer to realizing its bold goal of sourcing all external grid purchases from renewable power during the short time period.
