Production Plant for Lewatit® ion exchange resins in Leverkusen

At its site in Leverkusen, Germany, LANXESS produces specialty anion (based on phthalimide chemistry), cation exchange resins and chelating resins. The plant was established in 1966 and has a capacity of more than 35,000 metric tons.

In 2014 LANXESS has invested around EUR 10 million in a new production line for weakly acidic cation exchange resins of the Lewatit premium brand.

As part of the capacity expansion, a new building for filling products for foodstuff applications was constructed on an area of about 300 square meters. With this food-grade packaging facility, we are setting a very high standard for product purity and ensuring even better quality.
