LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF is constructing a new laboratory building that will combine research scientists from several specialties under one roof. The building is being created close to Gate 7 in the south of Ludwigshafen site, and on 4300 square metre of modern laboratory area. This offers material physicists and additive, formulation and polymer researchers ideal conditions for even closer cooperation. The investment amounts to approximately €50 million.

The new six-story building will be ready for occupancy in the second half of 2015. In constructing the new laboratory facilities, BASF attaches particular value to the use of energy-efficient solutions. Innovative construction materials from research as well as BASF products will be used. These include building insulation with high performance foams and Mastertop flooring for part of the floors.

“Innovations based on efficient and effective research and development are an important cornerstone of our strategy in the future and will be the guarantor of organic growth. With the new research building we will keep our site in Ludwigshafen competitive on an international level and strengthen our global research network,” said Dr Andreas Kreimeyer, Member of the Board of Executive Directors, Research Executive Director, BASF.
