BASF starts specialty amines production in Ludwigshafen

LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF SE said it has started up a world-scale plant for the production of specialty amines. The multi-product plant can manufacture approximately 12,000 metric tonne per year of a product range of about 15 amines for different applications. Owing to its high flexibility, the plant can also be used for the production of new specialty amines.

The major applications are currently in the construction, automotive, crop protection and pharmaceutical industries, it said.

“With the new plant, we are responding to our customers’ growing demand for specialty amines, particularly in Europe,” said Dr Stefan Blank, president, BASF Intermediates division.

“The special plant structure allows us to react flexibly to changes in the need for the various products. In addition, we can also produce commercial quantities of products from our innovation pipeline here,” said Dr Christoph Wegner, senior vice president, heading the regional business unit Amines Europe within BASF’s Intermediates division. “Being integrated into the BASF Verbund at the Ludwigshafen site also allows us to offer our customers, apart from research, the scale-up services through a pilot plant, all the way to the new multi-product plant.”
