Making formaldehyde production simpler

Through our FORMOXTM brand we have been providing reporting and insight services to formaldehyde producers for decades. Continuing to build on this, the JM-LEVOTM Formaldehyde portal is the first of our plant analytics and communication tools, helping you to effectively manage your formaldehyde production. It strengthens our support offer and provides a new and more efficient method of working and communicating with JM.  

The online platform provides a centralised interface for sharing and viewing your plant data, visualising key metrics, monitoring formaldehyde production and communicating with JM. System-generated guidance can be obtained, helping to mitigate any risks to operation and facilitate key decisions.

All analysis and recommendations are based on 60+ years of experience in the formaldehyde market and backed by our technical experts.  JM-LEVO Formaldehyde has been developed with direct customer input and offers a unique digital solution to support your formaldehyde production.
