BASF is investing a double-digit million Euro expansion of about 20 specialty amines at its Verbund facility in Ludwisghafen, Germany. The expanded production facilities will go online gradually by early 2017.

“This investment will allow us to meet the growing demand that our European customers have for specialty amines,” said Stefan Blank, president of BASF Intermediates division. BASF uses specialty amines in the production of coatings, lubricants, crop protection products and pharmaceuticals.

In March and April 2014, BASF announced the construction of two new multiple product plants that will manufacture specialty amines, with start-up planned for 2015. These plants are at the BASF Verbund sites in Ludwigshafen and Nanjing, China.

BASF is headquartered in Ludgwigshafen, Germany, and produces about 200 different amines, with the world’s most diverse portfolio of this type of chemical intermediate.
