BASF: Enter of the Market for Solid AH Salt

BASF SE has started up a facility to produce solid AH salt in Ludwigshafen, Germany, with a capacity of 24,000 metric tons per year. In contrast to the existing 62% AH salt solution, with solid AH salt, BASF is especially targeting long distance markets which cannot be served economically with an aqueous solution. AH salt is an intermediate for the production of polyamide 6.6. According to company information, customers around the world, especially in Asia, have expressed a strong interest in importing crystallized AH salt.

BASF produces polyamide 6.6 at the Ludwigshafen site within a production structure which includes facilities for the production of polyamide 6.6 polymer, adipic acid as well as facilities for relevant chemical raw materials (nitric acid, cyclohexane), energy, byproduct recovery, logistics and other services.

The intermediate hexamethylene diamine (HMD) is produced by a BASF plant at the Seal Sands (Great Britain) site, operated by Ineos.
