The Advanced Industrial Intermediates business unit of German specialty chemicals manufacturer Lanxess will invest around €100 million during the next three years, to expand production capacity of chemical intermediates. The amount will be invested in various production plants in Germany and Belgium, with expansion scheduled to be completed by 2020.

The company will invest €40 million each in the Leverkusen and Krefeld-Uerdingen facilities in Germany, with the rest to be spent to expand facilities in Brunsbüttel, Germany and Antwerp Belgium.

Lanxess will expand capacity for special amines at the Leverkusen site and at the Krefeld-Uerdingen site; the plan is to expand production facilities for trimethylolpropane, hexanediol and menthols.

It will also considerably increase the capacity of the MEA plant at Brunsbüttel at the Antwerp site; it will expand production capacities for rubber chemicals. (AR)
