Lanxess targets Asia with seawater reverse-osmosis membranes launch

Chemicals company Lanxess has targeted Asia with the addition of seawater reverse osmosis membranes to its Lewabrane range.

”Adding seawater desalination capabilities to our solutions portfolio is key to Lanxess’ growth. Asia
is strategically important to us,” said Lanxess director Alexander Scheffler.

The sea water reverse osmosis products add to the company’s Lewatit range of ion exchange
resins and LewaPlus simulation and design software which incorporates ion exchange resin and
reverse osmosis systems in water treatment plant designs.

Lanxess said seawater desalination was growing in importance in Asia where water resources
were becoming squeezed by growing populations and the need to end earlier groundwater
extraction methods that have contributed to urban subsidence. 

The company said it was “uniquely
positioned” to offer integrated treatment using reverse osmosis and ion exchange as it was one of
only two companies in the world to offer both technologies.
