BASF completes sale of bleaching clay, mineral adsorbents businesses
The bleaching clay and mineral adsorbents businesses are currently part of the process catalysts business unit of BASF’s global catalysts division.

ISELIN, US: BASF SE has closed the previously announced transaction to sell its bleaching clay and mineral adsorbents businesses to EP Engineered Clays Corporation.

The divestiture includes a production site and a clay mine in Mississippi, and the mineral rights sublease associated with a mine in Arizona. Sixty-six employees have transferred to EP Minerals.

“The divestiture of our bleaching clay and mineral adsorbents businesses will help us to focus our process catalysts portfolio on more strategic growth areas. We thank our employees in Mississippi for their contributions and wish them future success as part of the EP Minerals team,” said Detlef Ruff, BASF senior vice president, process catalysts.
