BASF announced the construction of a new plant for polyalkylene glycol (PAG)-based lubricants at its Ludwigshafen, Germany site. The manufacturing facility will start operations by the beginning of 2016 and produce PAG lubricant base stocks and formulated blends.

Through the integration in BASF’s largest Verbund site in Ludwigshafen, the new production unit will have full backward integration into all key raw materials including ethylene oxide and propylene oxide. The new facility will increase security of supply for BASF’s customers in the lubricant industry.
