New production plant for membrane filtration technology in Saxony-Anhalt
LANXESS has inaugurated a new chemical plant for membrane filtration technology for water treatment at its site in Bitterfeld. The company is investing a total of around EUR 30 million in this project. Some 200 new jobs are being created at the site.
An area totaling 4,000 square meters incorporates production facilities, laboratories, logistics areas and offices. The new facility had first successfully been started up for piloting and development phases in May of this year. The State of Saxony-Anhalt has supported the construction of the facility and related research and development activities with funding of around EUR eight million.
Among the most important applications for reverse osmosis membranes are the treatment of process water for power plants and the generation of ultrapure water in the microelectronics sector. The new LANXESS products, which are to be marketed under the brand name Lewabrane, lower the salt and particle content of water and are often combined with ion exchange resins to render a highly efficient and very powerful demineralization system.
