WACKER Invests in Jena Biotech Site
In Jena, the Munich-based chemical group WACKER has enhanced its production facilities
for biopharmaceuticals – also known as biologics – with new equipment. Furthermore,
an inspection by the Brazilian health authority ANVISA assessing the site’s quality
standards was a major success. Both developments increase the appeal of the Jena site
and offer benefits to customers.

of its customers. Cystine and cysteine produced from cystine are used in the food
