Mannheim - the third largest city in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg and LANXESS site for the Rhein Chemie business unit.
Products and Applications
At our Mannheim site we develop, produce and market additives, specialty chemicals and service products for the rubber, lubricants and plastics industries. The application areas are as diverse as the products themselves - including automotive and shipbuilding, aerospace technology and food processing.
More than 90 percent less waste water from manufacturing processes at the Mannheim location: This success in terms of environmental protection has been achieved in recent years through targeted process optimisation and the recycling of cleaning water. And that's not all - by building recooling plants, we have reduced the volume of wastewater used for cooling purposes to virtually zero.
Clean air: Here in Mannheim, we are relying on a modern thermal waste air purification plant. For the safe disposal of all exhaust air from all chemical processes.
Waste is collected separately and then sent for further recycling or disposal in a controlled process. Numerous process changes have reduced solid waste from production in Mannheim by around 75 percent.
The high LANXESS requirements for safe production processes in our plants can be traced down to the last detail. "Safety first" is our top priority. This begins in the minds of all employees and continues in the safety culture established throughout the Group.
Our basis for the safe operation of all production facilities:
- High qualification of our employees
- Continuous further development of our safety technology
- A comprehensive security system
