“As more and more Asian countries undertake initiatives to lower emissions, stricter environmental standards will be introduced," said Dr. Wolfgang Oehlert, head of Lanxess' IPG business unit in Asia Pacific.
In China, IPG operates two state-of-the-art facilities in Shanghai: one plant in Jinshan produces yellow iron oxide pigments and another in Taopu further processes the world renowned Bayferrox product line. The MPP business unit has production facilities in China and India. It recently expanded its plant in India, so as to more than double the plant’s monthly production capacity.
