LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF is investigating several different options to expand and globalize its Trilon M (methylglycinediacetic acid) production capacity including plant expansions and investments into new production facilities. The decision was made in order to meet the fast growing global market demand for its innovative chelating agent. First results from such investigations are expected before the end of 2013.

“By investigating the expansion of our production capacity for Trilon M, produced exclusively by BASF, we are looking for ways to support our customers in contributing to a sustainable development. Trilon M is readily biodegradable and improves the cleaning effect of detergents and cleaners in household applications as well as in industrial use,” said Gabriel Tanbourgi, President Care Chemicals, BASF.
