Lanxess invests in China, Singapore and India

In Singapore, for example, work recently began on building a plant for the production of butyl rubber, which is due to go on stream in 2013. A total of EUR 400 million has been set aside for this project. In Nantong near Shanghai, Lanxess, together with TSRC Corporation, is building a facility for NBR rubber at a cost of around EUR 36 million.
It is scheduled to begin production in 2012. At its production site of Jhagadia in India, Lanxess is currently involved with the construction of a compounding plant for the two engineering plastics Durethan (polyamide) and Pocan (polybutylene terephthalate), which is due to commence operation at the beginning of 2012. The cost of this investment is more than EUR 10 million.
