Ensure access to water and sanitation for all.

Water is life. Water is essential. And LANXESS helps to protect this precious resource at various levels. As a chemicals company, we rely on water for our production. But we are aware that our responsibilityregarding the most precious of resources does not end at our factory gates. Water availability and quality are global challenges that we can face up to locally as a company. For all our sites, we have performed water stress analyses using the Water Risk Map of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). A production-related risk assessment forms the basis for targets and measures.

 

But LANXESS is also one of the world's foremost suppliers of products for treating water. The Lewatit® ion exchanger ensures, for example, that "hard" calcium ions are replaced by "soft" sodium ions during water decalcification. In urban areas with limited access to pure water, wastewater can be reused thanks to LANXESS's reverse osmosis technology Lewabrane®, which uses semipermeable membranes to filter pollutants such as iron or manganese out of the water. In Lazorde Bay, Egypt, a dry coastal region, 48 of these elements transform water from the Mediterranean into drinking water - quickly and selectively, thus providing clean water for millions of people at risk from elevated arsenic concentrations in drinking water.
