Cogeneration Plant

LANXESS raises the bar for sustainable development in Nagda

With the start of its new co-generation plant, LANXESS is able to meet most of its energy demand at its Nagda site. The cogeneration plant, which is fuelled by the biomass fuel - soya husk, meets virtually most of the power requirements of the Advanced Industrial Intermediates (AII) plant of LANXESS at the site.

With an investment of EUR seven million in the pioneering plant, LANXESS has clearly raised the bar for sustainable development in India. By utilizing a renewable source of energy, LANXESS has significantly reduced its carbon footprint by 70,000 metric tons of coal per year and thus reduced about 120,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year. In comparison, the combustion of biomass as a fuel is carbon neutral for the environment.

This plant is another example of LANXESS’ commitment to green chemistry and sustainable development. The German specialty chemicals company is using innovative and climate-friendly technologies at its manufacturing sites worldwide and has reduced its direct greenhouse gas emissions by more then 50 percent globally. From 2007 to 2009, annual emissions from the group’s plants were cut from 3.5 million to 1.5 million metric tons of CO2 equivalents.
