Akkim Now Produces Betaine


Having completed the R&D works of its "Betaine Production" project in 2013, Akkim opened its Betaine production facility with the capacity of 15,000 tons in 2014. Betaine is an ingredient used in soap, detergent and shampoo production. By producing Betaine, Akkim not only included detergent and cleaning products to its portfolio, but also improved its know-how for other chemicals that are not yet within its product range. Akkim also produces thickening agents used in concetrated detergents, bleachers and paste detergents.
