BASF Restructures Nylon 6 Production

Germany-based chemical company BASF SE has announced it will restructure its nylon 6 production in Europe. The company will focus production at its integrated Verbund sites in Antwerp, Belgium, and Ludwigshafen, Germany, and will discontinue production at its site in Rudolstadt, Germany, by the end of 2010. The moves will result in the elimination of 58 positions in Rudolstadt and 19 positions in Ludwigshafen. The Ludwigshafen site will focus on manufacturing higher-margin products. BASF will continue operating a compounding plant in Rudolstadt for producing engineering plastics.

BASF reports the restructuring will reduce its annual global polymerization capacity by some 6 percent.
