Deploying a valuable resource

LANXESS ensures clean water in Tanzania and is committed to ecological education

Some 1 billion people worldwide have no access to clean drinking water, while sanitary facilities are an absolute luxury for 2 billion people. Every day, thousands of children die of infections caused by dirty water. LANXESS  makes an active contribution to improving use of this valuable resource through its water treatment products and corporate social responsibility.

Targeted aid in Africa
Thanks to cooperation between LANXESS and the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF), 25 schools in Tanzania with around 10,000 students have been given the water supplies they need, new sanitary facilities and health care and hygiene education. To also help draw attention in Germany to global water problems, LANXESS has established project weeks on water at four German high schools.

In 2011, LANXESS have launched a similar project in schools near our South African production site in Rustenburg. As many as 3,000 students, their teachers and parents in this area will soon benefit from improved access to clean water and modern sanitary facilities. The project also aims to significantly reduce the incidence of disease caused by contaminated water.
