Lanxess and energy company BP are entering into a strategic partnership for the use of sustainable raw materials in high-tech plastics production. BP plc, London/UK, will supply sustainably produced cyclohexane to the Lanxess’ production site in Antwerp/Belgium, starting in the 4th quarter of 2021. The sustainable origin of the raw materials is certified according to ISCC Plus rules (“International Sustainability and Carbon Certification”). With this partnership, both companies, which already have a long-standing business relationship, want to significantly advance the production of sustainable plastics. Lanxess AG, Cologne/Germany, uses cyclohexane as a precursor in the production of polyamide 6.
