LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF will build a new Trilon M (methylglycinediacetic acid) world scale plant at Evonik’s Theodore, Alabama site, US. The plant is built in order to meet the fast growing global market demand for its innovative chelating agent. The investment will be about $90 million and create around 20 additional jobs. The new production facility is planned to start up in the second half of 2015.

BASF’s innovative chelating agent is readily biodegradable and improves the cleaning effect of detergents and cleaners in home care and industrial and institutional (I&I) cleaning applications. It is emerging as the preferred alternative to phosphates in modern, high-performance, ecological dishwashing detergents.

“We continue to see rapid market growth for more eco-friendly cleaning products. With the expansion and globalization of our Trilon M production capacity we will be able to serve the global demand for Trilon M and supportour customers on their path towards sustainable cleaning solutions,” said Gabriel Tanbourgi, President, Care Chemicals division, BASF.
