M+W Group has signed a letter of intent for design and construction of a biotechnology plant complex in the Siberian town of Omsk. This was announced at the German-Russian raw materials forum taking place in Moscow. Contracting partner of M+W Group are the governor of Omsk, Mr. Leonid K. Polezhaev and the Titan Group of Companies in Omsk as the investor. Titan operates in the chemicals, metallurgy and agroindustry sectors and ranks among Russia's hundred largest private companies.
The planned plant complex counts as a key project in the development of plants for the manufacture of amino-acids in Russia. The intention is also to produce vitamins, organic acids, biologically active additives and pesticides. A complex for the production of biopolymers is also on the cards. The focus is on the best possible application of cycles of materials and resources. For the Omsk region the project offers an opportunity to site a new and forward-looking industry, for which the renewable raw materials from the region can be used.
M+W Process Industries, a company of the M+W Group, has been given the order for the initial planning phase in order to establish the foundations for further project realisation.
