Strong technologies for clean water. The Liquid Purification Technologies business unit (LPT) is one of the world`s foremost suppliers of products for treating water and other liquid media. We have nearly 80 years of experience in water treatment and are a leader in the development and production of ion exchange resins and iron oxide adsorbers. Furthermore, we are stepping up our involvement in our new field of business with reverse osmosis membrane elements. We operate production facilities at our sites in Leverkusen and Bitterfeld, Germany, and in Jhagadia, India.
With Lewatit® ion exchange resins and the new Lewabrane® membrane elements for reverse osmosis, we offer our customers two premium, perfectly attuned technologies. While membrane technology is very cost-efficient for water with a high salt content, only ion exchange resins can purify water with low salt concentrations to the point where merely trace amounts remain. Our high-performance products are used in numerous industries. Leading fields of application include the generation and treatment of drinking water, but also the treatment of process water, other industrial water, and wastewater. Bayoxide® E adsorbers reliably remove arsenic, for example, from drinking water and wastewater.
We also offer our LewaPlus® design software, a free tool for planning and designing water treatment systems that incorporate reverse osmosis (RO) and ion exchange resins (IX).

Through its performance capability and innovative strength, the chemical industry is improving the quality of life of people across the world. It is also making an important contribution to solving societal challenges. We see it as our corporate responsibility to create lasting value for all stakeholders and therefore to very consciously address the impact of our actions. The only way to futureproof our company is if our strategy balances the de ands of the economy, ecology and society. This is summed up in one short sentence: “Good for business, good for society.”
