+++ Press announcement +++
bright sunshine GLACONCHEMIE celebrated on 12th July 2013 the topping-out
ceremony for the new plant for the production of technical glycerine, according
to the old tradition. Numerous business partners, customers and participants on
construction projects made their way to the GLACONCHEMIE site and brought
together the Secretary of State Thomas Wünsch and the Mayoress of the city of
Merseburg Dr. Barbara Kaaden, which expressed gratitude to the craftsmen and
congratulations to the management.
With the 8
million euro investment GLACONCHEMIE has created 5 new job positions and
expects duplicating the production volume. It is such a big step for
GLACONCHEMIE to go forward in the direction of sustainability and green
of the floods in the spring of 2013, the board asked not to receive gifts and
instead donate the funds for the association Altstadtverein in Merseburg to
rehabilitate the Neumarktkirche St. Thomae church. So GLACONCHEMIE was able to
hand over a 1000 euro check to Horst Fischer, president of the association
Altstadtverein in Merseburg.

Zurich scientists have developed the gelatine substitute:
Researchers in Zurich have developed with the Materials engineer Rolf Müller a new type of gelatin made of starch, glycerin and water, which does not require animal proteins.
Quo Vadis natural glycerine?
Glycerine at room temperature is a colorless, odorless,
viscous, hygroscopic, and slightly sweet-tasting liquid.
Glycerine was discovered in 1779, at a time when chemistry
began to develop into a serious science, by Carl Wilhelm
Scheele, a pharmacist and chemist of German origin
and residing in Sweden, who isolated and examined
a number of chemical compounds, such as acetaldehyde
and uric acid.
