LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF is going to stop producing lead chromate pigments by the end of 2014 at the latest and concentrate worldwide on the production and marketing of alternative products. Recently, the process for approval prescribed under the European chemicals regulation REACH concerning lead chromates substances has been started. Hence, from May 2015, it will no longer be permitted to put into circulation lead chromate pigments without approval by the authorities. “We have for years been in the possession of a large portfolio of organic and inorganic pigments that represent excellent alternatives to lead chromate pigments,” said Stefan Sutterlin, Head of Business Management, Pigments, BASF.
