Officially opened on June 4, 2013, LANXESS’ butyl rubber plant in Singapore is the most modern of its kind in Asia. The facility on Jurong Island, built on an area of 150,000 square meters, is designed for a maximum production capacity of 100,000 metric tons per year.


At an investment of approximately EUR 400 million, the facility represents the largest plant investment in LANXESS’ history and at the same time, underlines our commitment to synthetic rubber as well as to our customers and to the future growth markets in Asia. It has created about 160 skilled jobs for the local workforce and produces premium halobutyl rubber and regular butyl rubber for the automotive, pharmaceutical and chewing gum industries.

Around 10 percent of the total investment has gone toward technologies that make the butyl rubber plant more environmentally friendly. For example, significantly less steam is used in the manufacturing process than in comparable facilities, leading to lower energy consumption. Chemical compounds from the production process are treated in state-of-the-art thermal off gas units to minimize environmental impact.

The Singapore facility joins our two existing butyl rubber plants in Sarnia, Canada, and Zwijndrecht, Belgium. This makes LANXESS the first butyl rubber manufacturer to have a global manufacturing footprint with state-of-the-art facilities on three continents.
