Examples of particularly good ideas that won awards last year include:
Two employees from the Inorganic Pigments Business Unit in Krefeld- Uedingen suggested an improved process for replacing the mechanical seals on the stirring tanks. This improvement is leading to annual cost savings of some 113,000 euros. Thanks to another idea put forward by a small team of production employees, the loading process time for iron-oxide paste will be shortened, enabling an increase in volume of approximately 1300 tons.
An employee from the LANXESS-subsidiary company Saltigo GmbH in Leverkusen had a very good idea that helped improve the operating results. As a result of these ideas, volume savings on solvents and combustion costs have been achieved in a multistage synthesis chain.
This year, employees are once again being invited to develop ideas to improve work processes.
