Climate-Neutral Energy Supply 

As a market leader for inorganic pigments, LANXESS sees the sustainability of its products and processes as absolutely essential. At our synthesis site in Brazil, for example, we produce yellow iron oxide almost climate neutrally. 

About 90 % of the required energy is generated from renewable feedstock by a CoGeneration plant. In addition, we have invested in a photovoltaic solar power plant to cover the missing demand. About 80,000 t/a less CO2 is emitted in the production process at Porto Feliz compared to traditional yellow iron oxide plants with the same annual capacity. This is corresponding to a CO2 per capita consumption per year of about 34,000 Brazilian inhabitants.
