  • New production line of BU Rhein Chemie for Rhenodiv® at Jhagadia site
  • To cater to the growing demands of the Indian Sub-continent & Asian markets

Jhagadia, 13 March 2023 - Specialty chemicals company, LANXESS laid the foundation stone for its Business Unit Rhein Chemie’s new and upcoming production line for Rhenodiv® - New Technology Release agents at its Jhagadia site.
