BASF increases the capacity of the neopentyl glycol plant

International. BASF revealed that it has increased the capacity of its neopentyl glycol (NPG) plant at Verbund's headquarters in Ludwigshafen, Germany, by 10,000 metric tons per year. Thus, the company has a total of 215,000 metric tons of NPG capacity with facilities in Ludwigshafen, Freeport/USA, Nanjing, and Jilin/China.

In addition, BASF is currently expanding its NPG capacity at the Nanjing headquarters by another 40,000 tonnes available from 2020, as announced in December 2017. With NPG production facilities in Europe, Asia and North America, BASF is one of the world's leading NPG manufacturers. "The expansion of production in Ludwigshafen underlines our clear commitment to continuously support the growth of our European customers," says Michael Britt, senior vice president of acids and diols in BASF's intermediates division.

Due to its high chemical and thermal stability, NPG has proven its effectiveness in many applications, especially in the production of polyester and alkyd resins for various coatings and plastics. An essential field of application is powder coatings, which are particularly successful in the construction industry as well as in the coating of household appliances.
