CSB are additives-blends individually tailored to meet specific customer needs in the plastics industry.
"BASF's investment in this new site demonstrates our steadfast commitment to support growing industries in the Middle East, while at the same time setting standards with regard to quality, safety and employee training", said Michael Heinz, member of the board of executive directors at BASF, during the opening ceremony.
The new facility, which is based on proprietary CSB technology, will provide local production and services to the polymer market in the Middle East, BASF announced.
John Frijns, head of plastic additives Europe/EAWA, stresses the necessity of local structures: "As BASF, we are committed to accompany the growth in the region with technical and flexible supply solutions. This is only possible as a local supplier".
