The proposed facility would be based on the Ineos Nitriles, LLC® site at Green Lake. Working together, Ineos and Novus will expand Novus’s production capacity significantly at the site, creating dozens of new jobs in the community.
With final approval expected to come in the second half of 2018, the expansion is expected to be completed in 2020. Newton Manufacturing, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Novus International, will own and manage the facility.
The expansion in production reflects the rising demand for animal protein production worldwide due to an ever-growing global population. The new manufacturing site will produce ALIMET®, an FDA-approved source of methionine, which is a necessary component of a balanced and healthy diet for livestock, poultry, and aquaculture diets.
The new manufacturing facility would be operated by Ineos Nitriles LLC, the project will increase Novus’s production capacity by 120 kT per year.
