LANXESS has invested EUR 5 million in its phosphorus chemicals production network in Leverkusen, Germany. This will increase capacity of one of the largest phosphorus chemicals production networks in the world by 10 % for phosphorus chlorides. In addition to debottlenecking the production unit, they improved the logistics concepts for their drum- and tank car-filling facilities.
Starting with elemental phosphorus, LANXESS produces a variety of derivatives which can be used in numerous fields of application. Phosphorus chlorides are starting materials for the chemical synthesis of flame retardants, water treatment chemicals, lubricant additives, crop protection active ingredients, and active pharmaceutical ingredients.
