The joint venture firm was established with 66% equity from BASF Japan and 34% from Toda Kogyo. The joint venture will conduct research and development, production, marketing and sales for a broad range of cathode materials which are used in lithium-ion batteries for the automotive, consumer electronics and stationary storage markets. The joint venture firm will operate as part of BASF's global Battery Materials business.

Yara International and BASF Group to Build Ammonia Plant in Freeport, Texas

Yara International and BASF Group have agreed to build a world-scale ammonia plant at BASF's site in Freeport, Texas. The plant will use hydrogen as raw material, reducing capital expenditures (capex), maintenance and carbon dioxide emissions significantly. The ammonia plant will be owned 68% by Yara and 32% by BASF and located on BASF's site in Freeport. The plant will have a capacity of about 750,000 metric tons per year. Each party will off-take ammonia from the plant in accordance with its equity share. Total capital investment for the plant is estimated at USD 600 million. Yara will in addition build an ammonia tank at the BASF terminal bringing Yara's total investment to USD 490 million. BASF will in addition upgrade its current terminal and pipeline assets. The hydrogen technology reduces capex and maintenance significantly compared to a traditional natural gas based ammonia plant. The technology also allows for lower carbon dioxide emissions. A long-term supply agreement for nitrogen and hydrogen has been signed with Praxair Inc., the large industrial gases company in North America, linking the feedstock variable cost to the advantageous natural gas prices available at the U.S. Gulf Coast. KBR Inc. has been awarded a fixed price turnkey contract for the engineering, procurement and construction. The plant is expected to be completed by the end of 2017. Yara will manage construction of the plant while BASF will operate the plant and the export terminal.

PETRONAS Chemicals Group (PCG) and BASF to Build 2-Ethylhexanoic Acid Plant in Malaysia

PETRONAS Chemicals Group (PCG) and BASF will build a new world-scale 30,000 tonnes/year 2-ethylhexanoic acid (2-EHAcid) plant in Kuantan, Malaysia. The plant will be built at the site of the companies' existing joint venture BASF PETRONAS Chemicals. Construction is expected to commence in the second quarter of this year and the plant is slated to start production in the fourth quarter of 2016. The new plant will benefit from backward integration into the site, allowing high delivery reliability and maximizing efficient use of energy and feedstock. 2-EHAcid is a chemical intermediate used as a compound in the production of synthetic lubricants as well oil additives. It is also used for functional fluids like automotive coolants, metal salts for paint dryers, plasticizers. BASF PETRONAS Chemicals is also currently building a $500 million integrated aroma ingredients complex at the Kuantan site for the production of citronellol, L-menthol, as well as citral and its precursors, which are widely used in flavour and fragrance industry. The first plant in this project is scheduled to come on stream in 2016.
