Lanxess strengthens its butyl rubber site in Belgium

May 08/2012

(chemeurope) -- Specialty chemicals company Lanxess  is strengthening its butyl rubber plant in Zwijndrecht, Belgium. The company has significantly invested to expand the production capacity of the existing plant and to build two new pilot plants for the development of production technology for butyl rubber.

LANXESS is one of the worlds largest producers of butyl rubber, which is mainly used in the production of tires. The biggest share of butyl rubber produced in Zwijndrecht is premium halobutyl rubber.

This investment underpins the major role that our butyl rubber production here in Zwijndrecht plays in our global strategy. Our plans for continued growth are founded on innovation and technology that serves the global megatrends with the primary focus on solutions for sustainable mobility, said Axel C. Heitmann, Chairman of the Board of Management at Lanxess, during the official opening ceremony.
