BASF new polyalkylene glycol based lubricant plant

LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF announced the construction of a new plant for polyalkylene glycol (PAG)-based lubricants at its Ludwigshafen site in Germany. The manufacturing facility will start operations by the beginning of 2016 and produce PAG lubricant base stocks and formulated blends.

With this double-digit million euro investment BASF continues to support the global growth of synthetic lubricant formulators who use these BASF products in their final formulated lubricants. Through the integration in BASF’s largest Verbund site in Ludwigshafen, Germany, the new production unit will have full backward integration into all key raw materials including ethylene oxide and propylene oxide.

“With the new plant we are consequently following our strategic path as a world-class leading supplier for synthetic lubricant solutions. The investment represents another significant step for us as well as our customers,” said Martin Widmann, Senior Vice President, Fuel and Lubricant Solutions, BASF.
