Production Plant for Lewatit® ion exchange resins in Jhagadia

Since December 2010, LANXESS is meeting the growing demand for ion exchange resins for water treatment from its production site for ion exchange resins in Jhagadia, India. The specialty chemicals company is the first international player to set up an ion exchange resins manufacturing plant in India.

The new facility is the most modern plant in Asia and was constructed on an area totaling 180,000 square meters within a period of two years. Already during the planning phase, strict standards going beyond the stipulations of the authorities and regional environmental specifications applied. The wastewater is pre-cleaned in a separate wastewater treatment plant by LANXESS before it is released into the chemical park’s wastewater system.

The plant boasts an annual capacity of 35,000 metric tons where products for industrial water treatment for the semi-conductor and pharmaceutical industries, the food sector and the power industry are manufactured.
