LANXESS has long been engaged in the Responsibility Care initiative, and integrated it into every aspect of the company operation.

Founded in 1995, the LANXESS Rhein Chemie (Qingdao) Ltd. has been providing rubber additives and lubricant additives for the automobile industry and industrial lubricants. One of its major product lines – the rubber processing agents are all produced by environmentally friendly materials, the majority of which are renewable materials. For example, Rhein Chemie Aktiplast PP and Rhein Chemie Aktiplast T, which have been extensively utilized in tire and manufacturing industries, are able to significantly reduce the moony viscosity of customers’ sizing materials, thus mitigating the energy consumption and mechanical wear during the mixing process. Applied to green tire formulas, Rhein Chemie Aktiplast ST and Rhein Chemie Aflux 37 can effectively improve the dispersity of white carbon black and the quality of customers’ sizing materials to reduce the rolling resistance and heat build-up, lowering the fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission.

Rhein Chemie Rhenogran TP-50, a product manufactured in the Qingdao site, can meet the current requirement of nitrosamine free curing of the auto industry. Packages for water miscible cutting fluids Additin RC 5710 adopts the long-life antibiosis formula, which is capable of extending the work lifetime of metal processing fluid, thereby greatly inhibits the generation of waste water.

The LANXESS (Liyang) Polyols Co., Ltd. was established in 2009 in Liyang, Jiangsu and operated by the LANXESS Advanced Industrial Intermediates business unit. It focuses on the production of TMP, Di-TMP and Cafo, which assist the customers in the manufacturing of environmental coatings. For their superior performance in reducing the emission of VOC, the company has received strong support and encouragement from the government.

The Liyang factory is also equipped with off-gas incinerators, not only eliminating the emission of process exhaust, but also substantially saving the energy and cutting the emission of greenhouse gases. The advanced processing facilities and sewage treatment processes first lessen the production of sewage, and then make sure the treated and discharged waste water meets the strictest criteria.

Besides Open-to-Public Day, LANXESS provides scholarship to hundreds of college and high school students, donates electronic equipment and books to the migrant workers’ children of Qinghe School in Nanchang District, Wuxi, and endows the chemical experiment kits designed by LANXESS to various primary schools, with a hope to learn basic chemical knowledge and stimulate their interest in the chemical field.
