Mar '09
Specialty chemical company LANXESS India Private Limited sponsored Azeotropy'09, which was held from 7-8th March '09 at IIT Bombay, one of the country's most prestigious technology institutes.

At LANXESS, innovation also means environmental protection and sustainability. For LANXESS sponsoring Azeotrophy'09 – We mean Green was to encourage young chemical engineers to come up with the technologies to combat pollution in all its forms and ensure a greener and cleaner plant.

Azeotropy'09 is organized by IIT Bombay and the Chemical Engineering Association which is the biggest event of its kind in the country. Azeotropy is more than just a technology festival. It aims at emphasizing the spirit of engineering, experimenting with ideas, of committing mistakes, but more importantly, learning from them.

Azeotropy'09's tag line “We mean Green” is perfectly synonymous with LANXESS' core ideology of “Green Chemistry” as its focus on sustainability and innovation. Thus, LANXESS is proud to associate itself with this festival as IIT Bombay is widely recognized as a centre of academic excellence. At Azeotropy'09, students from all across India participate and only the best of the students are selected. The event brings out the best minds in the field, encouraging innovation and outstanding performance.

At the event, the Paper & Poster presentation competition that LANXESS India chose to sponsor focuses on students' creativity on the theme “Green Technology”. As LANXESS believes in valuing innovation and sustainability and this is the best opportunity for LANXESS to contribute to the field of chemistry.

Based on this event, Joerg Strassburger, Managing Director and Country Representative, LANXESS India Private Limited said, “LANXESS is committed to encouraging unique innovations, be it within the company or outside it. Education plays a vital role in shaping the future of our communities and we share the dream of the community to nurture young minds and encourage the youth to go forward and be the best that they can be.”

He further added, “LANXESS is committed to the improvement of environment and maintenance of excellent health and safety standards. We are happy to be part of an event that promotes such innovations in science.”
