At its Antwerp site Lillo, Lanxess produces Caprolactam, a precursor for the high performance plastic Durethan.
At its Antwerp site Lillo, Lanxess produces Caprolactam, a precursor for the high performance plastic Durethan.

German specialty chemicals company Lanxess announced an investment of roughly €25 million this year to strengthen its integrated production complex for polyamide (PA) and precursors for plastics in Lillo, Antwerp, Belgium.

"Our integrated production complex in Lillo is the backbone of our global business for high-tech plastics. Given the trend toward lightweight construction in the automotive industry, for example, this is a major future market. Therefore we are continuously strengthening the competitiveness of this site," said Matthias Zachert, Chairman of the Board of Management at Lanxess.

The announcement was made on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of caprolactam production at the site. Caprolactam is a key precursor for the production of Lanxess' high-tech plastics. Besides the automotive industry, these plastics are also used in electrical and electronics applications.

In total, Lanxess has invested more than €300 million in Lillo since 2004. A world-class polymerization plant with an annual capacity of 90,000 metric tons is connected directly to the caprolactam production facility. Since its start in summer 2014, PA is shipped from Antwerp to Lanxess's global network of compounding facilities, where it is further processed into the high-tech plastics.
