BASF: Antioxidants-blending facility in Bahrain

By Gerald Ondrey |

BASF SE (Ludwigshafen, Germany; www.basf.com) plans to build a production facility for customer specific antioxidant blends (CSB) in Bahrain. The new CSB plant will come in addition to the existing tolling agreement for CSB with Astra Polymer in the Kingdom of Saudi-Arabia, which is mainly supplying local customers. “With the new production facility in Bahrain, we will be able to support the fast growth of our customers in the Middle East region while providing the flexibility in supply and service speed that our customers require”, explains Hans W. Reiners, president Performance Chemicals Division of BASF. John Frijns, Senior Vice President Plastic Additives Europe/EAWA, adds: “Following the evaluation of several investment options, we have decided that a new antioxidant blending facility in Bahrain will provide the highest value for both, our customers and BASF”.
