LEVERKUSEN, GERMANY/PORTO FELIZ, BRAZIL: Rhein Chemie, wholly-owned subsidiary of Lanxess, has opened a new facility for high-performance bladders (curing bladders) in Porto Feliz, Brazil. The curing bladders are used in production of tires. It has an annual capacity of about 170,000 bladders. In 2014, a new facility to manufacture pre-dispersed polymer-bound rubber additives (Rhenogran), with a capacity of 1,800 metric tonne per year, will be added. Altogether, Lanxess is investing some €10 million and creating around 60 new jobs.

“With this investment in Brazil, the world’s sixth largest economy, we reaffirm our focus on the emerging markets. We want to share in the positive development of the automotive and tire industries in Latin America,” said Rainier van Roessel, Board Member, Lanxess.
