Lanxess: Production Start-up Postponed

The specialty chemicals company Lanxess AG, Leverkusen, Germany, is postponing construction of its new butyl rubber plant in Singapore in view of the continuing global economic crisis. Production start-up is now scheduled for 2014.

Lanxess is using the delay to introduce an innovative technology for butyl rubber production in its new plant. The new production plant in Singapore, with a capacity of around 100,000 t and costing up to 400 million EUR, was originally due to come on stream in 2012. The company expects that the new capacity will not be required until 2014 at the earliest. This two-year delay will enable the company to develop a recently achieved breakthrough in a new production process to industrial-scale readiness. The world’s most modern plant based on this process will be built in Singapore.
