DexLeChem

Sustainability

Our corporate philosophy has an innovative approach and comprises the unrestricted implementation of the twelve principles of Green Chemistry, constituted by Paul T. Anastas and our Advisory Board Member, role model and dear friend John C. Warner. As a high-tech company in the chemical industry we want to sharpen the view for sustainable and at the same time economical entrepreneurship. Our aim is to promote the transition of chemical industry towards a sustainable reindustrialization.

In order to produce in a resource-friendly way and to reduce pollution, innovative techniques for industrial chemistry are in demand, DexLeChem offers innovative process approaches for the manufacturing of fine chemicals such as:

 - Synthesis in aqueous solutions (e.g. micellar catalysis) which leads to a cost reductions of up to 17%

- Optimized processes for the separation of mixtures which reduce the consumption of energy and materials

- Re-using of homogeneous catalysts to reduce their costs up to 82%. This prevents racemization and extensive separations of enantiomers are no longer necessary, leading to 50% less waste.

- Applying computational tools to enhance resource efficiency up to 20%, reduce cycle time by up to 40%, as well as the product quality (higher yields, improved reproducibility & robustness of the process).

Our understanding of sustainability also comprises our company. Even though we are young, we see ourselves as a "family-run" company with its own tradition. We want to make a contribution to green chemistry also for the benefit of future generations.
