PORT JEROME, FRANCE/LEVERKUSEN, GERMANY: Lanxess is investing in its production site for high-performance rubber in Port Jerome, France. The Group plans to invest €30 million by 2015 to further enhance productivity and energy efficiency. The plant in Port Jerome currently has a production capacity of 140,000 metric tonne per year and produces high-performance rubbers neodymium-polybutadiene (Nd-PBR) and solution styrene-butadiene (SSBR), used primarily for the production of ‘green tires.’

“The production of high performance rubbers in Port Jerome plays a key role in our global strategy. We support global megatrends with our innovations and technologies. A particular focus here is solutions for sustainable mobility. Our high-performance rubbers are indispensable for meeting the new legal requirements and satisfying the customer wishes expected to arise from them. As the world’s largest partner to the tire industry, we have reacted promptly to this trend by making the corresponding strategic investments decisions and expanding our capacities,” said Axel C Heitmann, Chairman, Lanxess.
