BASF will close its Erie, Pennsylvania, catalyst plant by 2021. The facility makes base metal and liquid catalysts of its own design and on a toll basis for third-party customers. Among the products made there are nickel catalysts for petrochemicals, vanadium catalysts for maleic anhydride, and copper-based catalysts for fatty alcohols. The company attributes the closure to market conditions. Some 75 workers will be laid off, and demolition will be completed by mid-2022.
