Winner of the National Green Plant Certificate

We have set yet another new benchmark in the pigments industry. LANXESS is the only global producer of synthetic iron oxide pigments to have received the prestigious National Green Plant certificate from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China for the new production facility in Ningbo. This quality seal is awarded to just one thousand best-in-class companies who demonstrate a clear commitment to sustainability in their respective industries by implementing cutting-edge technology and environmentally friendly practices in their production facilities.

The National Green Plant certificate is a key element of China’s Green Manufacturing System, which aims to accelerate industrial development while maintaining high environmental standards. In its 13th five-year plan China promotes renewable energies and improved utilization of resources to reduce environmental pollution. To achieve these goals, the MIIT launched the program in April 2017. National Green Plants serve as examples in their industries and set future benchmarks for sustainable production standards stipulated by the Chinese government.

Our plant is located in the Ningbo Petrochemical Economic & Technological Development Zone, one of China’s major chemical industrial parks. Here, the newly developed Ningbo Process® is used for the production of synthetic yellow-shade red iron oxides.
