Bayer creates 20 jobs at carbon nanotubes site

27th January 2009

Bayer has started work on a new carbon nanotubes (CNT) production site which will create 20 jobs.

The facility, located in Chempark Leverkusen in Germany, will be one of the largest in the world with its capacity of 200 tons per year. Its construction, planning and development are dependent on 22 million euros (20.6 million pounds) of investment from the company.

Speaking at a press conference, Dr Wolfgang Plischke, member of the Bayer board of management responsible for innovation, technology and the environment, explained the funding.

"Bayer is investing in this, the world’s largest CNT production plant, because we are convinced of the technological and economic efficiency of the process," he said.

CNTs are produced by a catalytic process, whereby they are acquired from a carbon-containing gas heated in a reactor. Bayer’s product – branded Baytubes – are used to manufacture lightweight materials which retain their strength and durability.
