- Reliable and cost-efficient marketing of standard products
- Marketing of organic and inorganic specialties with the corresponding technical applications know-how
- Our development laboratories collaborate closely with customers and partners
For standard products, our priority is supplying customers reliably and cost-efficiently. Internally, we supply nearly all BASF divisions with our products. We offer organic and inorganic specialties together with the corresponding technical applications know-how. In these areas, our development laboratories work particularly closely with our customers and partners.
In order to further improve our market position in South America and to serve our customers there even better and faster, we started up a sodium methylate production plant in Guaratinguetá, Brazil. Sodium methylate is a reliable and efficient catalyst for the production of biodiesel. The new plant has an annual capacity of 60,000 metric tons.
With more than 300 reference plants, BASF is today one of the world’s leading suppliers in the gas treatment business. BASF began the industrial, amine-based separation of carbon dioxide from syngas, which is required for ammonia production, as early as 1971. Our portfolio was extended step by step, incorporating technologies such as the purification of natural gas, refinery off-gas, flue gas and biogas. Today, under the brand name Oase®, we have a comprehensive offering ranging from technology, gas treatment chemicals and technical support services to on-site training of personnel at our customers’ plants.
