ADISSEO Commentry – France

Located in the heart of the Auvergne region, Commentry is the Group's only multi-product site.

Manufacturing methionine powder ( Rhodimet®) , coated methionine ( Smartamine®)  and vitamins ( Microvit®), the Commentry plant has a major industrial role in the economic growth of the region.

Our ambition and strategy: become a multi-activity industrial platform

The commentry plant has begun construction of a co-generation biomass power plant with an annual production capacity equivalent to the electricity consumption of 100,000 inhabitants. It will begin operations in late 2015.

An ambitious investment in new production capacities

Set to begin operations in late 2014, the new production of coated methionine will allow Adisseo to strengthen its position as the world’s number one producer for ruminant products and offer its employees a fully automated workshop.

Fifty employees dedicated to research, innovation, process improvement and quality assurance

Commentry retains a research, analysis and control laboratory as well as a Center for Nutritional Study and Research for testing and developing our products and services.

Recognized safety expertise

With its expertise in the field of safety, Adisseo inaugurated a Training Center in 2009.

Every year, a thousand people from medium and large companies are trained in safety, prevention and risk management.

Committed to sustainable development


Focused on renewable energy

In 2015, Adisseo will reduce its C02 emissions by purchasing 50% of the steam produced by the biomass cogeneration plant.


Encouraging professional callings

Adisseo supports students from the Ecole Nationale Superieure de Chimie de Clermont Ferrand (ENSCCF) by sponsoring 75 engineering students from the 2013 to 2016 classes.

Adisseo also sponsors the Chemistry Olympiad, a national competition for high school students to assess their knowledge of chemistry. Adisseo thus promotes the study of chemistry and makes the industry more attractive for students.


Maximizing our resources

In order to reduce 90% of transportation related to sending Eaux Mères Secondaires (EMS) for incineration, Adisseo built a new EMS processing unit to extract organic impurities.


Respecting our neighbors

To identify odors that can be generated by our activity, Adisseo established a team of olfactory experts, all trained in the detection and characterization of odors. With their involvement, we are improving our ability to react quickly by being immediately aware of the anomaly and implementing the necessary actions to correct it.
