Eddyville Plant

WACKER BIOSOLUTIONS’ Eddyville site has proven indispensable in manufacturing this business division’s biotech products. Since the early 1980s, WACKER has emphasized research and development of cyclodextrins (ring-shaped sugar molecules), and is a global market leader in this segment.

Since 1999, innovative cyclodextrins have been produced in the Eddyville facilities built by WACKER. Cyclodextrins often serve as stabilizers and carriers in pharmaceutical applications and in the life science industry. The Eddyville plant takes advantage of being in the heart of corn country; proximity to this key raw material facilitates the production of cyclodextrins.

Like all WACKER sites, the Eddyville plant observes global chemical industry Responsible Care® guidelines and boasts a comprehensive quality & safety program.
