BASF To Build Methylamines Plant in Louisiana

November 30, -0001

BASF will build a new plant for the production of methylamines at its integrated site in Geismar, LA. The company expects to start operations in 2011. The methylamines will serve as raw materials for 20 different specialty amines produced at existing facilities in Geismar.

“This is extremely important for us since our customers use these derivatives as key starting materials to manufacture water treatment, gas treatment and cleaning agents, detergents as well as pharmaceuticals and crop protectants—products that provide answers to global needs and future megatrends,” said Dr. Beate Ehle, president of BASF’s Intermediates division.

BASF currently operates three methylamine facilities worldwide.
