Press release
April 30, 2022

Effective May 1, 2022, Evonik’s Catalyst business line will be implementing a price increase to cope with the globally growing price escalation.

Especially the last months’ increases in energy, raw material and transportation prices have forced Evonik to take this decision because they reached a level that cannot be compensated by improved efficiency of processes only.

Evonik sees efficiency increase as one of its core commitments as a reliable supplier to its business partners but for now this action has to be taken to sustain future business.

Prices will be adjusted as required and across the whole portfolio of products and services. Customers will be informed of the specific price increases by their account managers.

Evonik Catalysts is committed to keeping a superior level of service and customer support.

Please contact your sales representative for specific details.
