BASF: New Nitric Acid Plant Comes on Stream

BASF SE has started operating a new plant for the production of nitric acid at Antwerp Verbund site in Belgium with a production capacity of 500,000 metric tons per year. The plant is fully automated with ultramodern process control systems (PCS) and is equipped with a high efficiency system to remove nitrogen oxide from waste gases. This is BASF’s first nitric acid plant built using exclusively BASF’s own technology, in other words, all the engineering, procurement and assembly expertise was supplied by BASF.

Nitric acid is one of the most important inorganic intermediates and the plant’s output will be used mainly to manufacture polyurethane. At the new Antwerp complex, nitric acid can be produced in a concentration of 68% which is used mainly in polyurethane chemistry to synthesize the isocyanates MDI and TDI.
