BASF to increase global capacity for 1,6-hexanediol

LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF will increase its annual global capacity for manufacturing the chemical intermediate 1,6-hexanediol (HDO) by more than 20 per cent to more than 50,000 tonne per annum by 2014. For this purpose, the company will further optimize its production processes, carry out various infrastructure projects and enhance its logistical processes. BASF will invest more than €30 million.
