BASF Plans new Vitamin A Plant
A new plant for vitamin A to be built by BASF at its Ludwigshafen, Germany, main site will increase production capacity by 1,500 t/y, the German group said without disclosing a capacity total. The facility, planned to support growth at customers, is due on stream in 2020. BASF produces vitamin A both for animal and human nutrition and the cosmetic industry.
Managing board member Michael Heinz said BASF can make “optimal use” of its resources by fully integrating the new production facility into the site’s integrated production system while at the same time enhancing Ludwigshafen’s competitive position.
