BASF will expand the manufacturing plant for its LIX product range in Ireland

LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY/CORK, IRELAND: BASF will expand the manufacturing plant for its LIX product range at its Cork site, Ireland. An investment is underway with production scheduled by end of first quarter of 2015. The LIX product range of solvent extractants is used for hydrometallurgical extraction of copper from oxide ores. BASF has a broad range of reagents and provides optimized solutions, particularly for mines experiencing difficult operating conditions.

“With the enlarged capacity, we are able to reliably supply to the steadily increasing demand for our LIX reagents. This is an example of our approach to offer our customers the best possible combination of high quality products and competent on-site service. We are expanding our capacity to support our customers in their growth and accompany them as a reliable supplier into the future, too,” said Francois Desne, Senior Vice President, Global Business Unit Water, Oilfield and Mining Solutions, BASF.
