Röhm Worms Site Fire Incident. According to a press release from Röhm GmbH, a fire broke out at their Worms facility on November 2, 2023. Emergency teams responded swiftly, extinguishing the fire without any reported injuries.

The incident occurred during a maintenance shutdown of the plant. As a result, most of the site’s seven plants are now temporarily closed.

The Worms site, Röhm’s largest with 1,200 employees, mainly produces polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and methacrylates (MMA). Despite the fire, the PMMA production plant remains operational.

Ongoing investigations are focused on determining the fire’s cause. Röhm is coordinating with authorities to ensure a safe resumption of operations at the other plants.
