Cologne -

Specialty chemicals company LANXESS globally increases the prices for ion exchange resins, reverse osmosis membrane elements and iron oxide adsorbers for water treatment by three percent on average with immediate effect. Increasing input costs have lead to this price adjustment. These measures vary according to field of application and region.
