Koeberg Responds To Water Shortages By Launching A Desalination Plant

After 18 months of construction, the new plant expansion for BASF's chelating agent Trilon? M has now been brought on stream at the BASF web site in Ludwigshafen, Germany. Expansion of the Trilon M plant has created 18 new jobs in Ludwigshafen.



"This world scale plant ? which is fully integrated in the BASF Verbund ? has been brought on stream three months ahead of the scheduled completion date," executive director Dr. John Feldmann announces. "This achievement is another example of the excellent cooperation at BASF that enables us to execute complex investment projects in record time ? from plant development, planning, and construction by BASF engineers, right through to successful startup.?

From now on, BASF has at its disposal a global annual production capacity of 120,000 tonnes for chelating agents.

"The capacity expansion is BASF's response to the increasing global demand for modern chelating agents," Feldmann comments. BASF expects double-digit percentage growth rates for environment-friendly chelating agents. Apart from Ludwigshafen, BASF also manufactures chelating agents in Lima, Ohio, USA, and Guaratinguet?, Brazil. Trilon M can be manufactured in Lima, as well as in Ludwigshafen, ensuring global availability.
