LANXESS India wins CII’s Water Management Company of the Year 2020 award

Mumbai/Nagda, August 31, 2021 – Specialty chemicals company LANXESS India has won the prestigious Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) award for Water Management for the year 2020 for its commitment and significant achievements in the area of Water Conservation in its manufacturing operations in Nagda, Madhya Pradesh. The award was presented to LANXESS on Saturday, 28th August in a virtual ceremony.

Over the years, the company has made consistent efforts in improving its water utilization at the site through implementation of innovative technologies and best practices for water conservation. LANXESS’ Nagda site has a full-fledged Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) and a state-of-the-art sewage treatment plant which treats sewage water from the colonies around and renders it fit for use in production processes.

Strengthening its commitment towards sustainability, LANXESS commissioned a waste water post treatment plant with Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) facility in 2012 at its Nagda site. This plant treats the discharge from the existing effluent treatment plant in a manner that no liquid effluents are discharged from the site. The water recovered from the waste water post treatment plant with ZLD is used for the production processes. This is a significant step in the Indian chemical industry and sets a new benchmark in the area of sustainability.

Commenting on the recognition, Neelanjan Banerjee, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, LANXESS India said, “As a responsible corporate citizen, LANXESS India is committed towards creating sustainable water management solutions and conserving water resources. This recognition inspires us to further strengthen our efforts towards Sustainability.”
