Lanxess starts up newly expanded cresol plant

Mary Page Bailey

Specialty chemicals company Lanxess (Cologne, Germany; www.lanxess.com) has completed the expansion of its cresol production plant in Leverkusen, Germany, and has now begun operating a newly constructed reaction system as well as a second distillation column. The expansion increases capacity for this high-quality intermediate for the global market by some 20%. Lanxess has invested around 20 million in the new units. Agrochemicals are among the fields of application for cresols. They are also used in the manufacture of vitamin E, aroma chemicals, resins and flame-retardants.
