LEVERKUSEN, GERMANY: Lanxess has opened a new formalin production plant at its Krefeld-Uerdingen site, Germany. The investment totals around €18 million, creating five new jobs. New formalin and methanol tanks have been constructed along with the plant and its 38 metre high tower on an area totaling 1,000 square metre.

“With our own formalin plant, we’re enhancing our site in Krefeld-Uerdingen and continuing to expand our leading position as a manufacturer and supplier of trimethylolpropane. Producing formalin on site means we are no longer dependent on buying in this necessary feedstock, thereby also cutting transportation costs. We’re also improving energy efficiency and helping to protect the environment thanks to a unique adsorber process,” said Dr Hubert Fink, Head of Semi-Crystalline Products business, Lanxess.
