BASF To Increase Hexanediol Capacity

Department: Business

BASF will increase production capacity for the chemical intermediate 1,6-hexanediol (HDO) at its facilities in Ludwigshafen, Germany, and Freeport, Texas, by about 20% to more than 50,000 metric tons per year by 2014. The expansion program is set to cost roughly $40 million. It will involve the implementation of various infrastructure projects and the optimization of production processes and logistics. HDO is used to produce industrial coatings, polyurethanes, adhesives, cosmetics, and other products.
