BASF increases ammonium carbonate capacity at Ludwigshafen

April 20/2012
(basf) -- BASF is increasing the production capacity of its ammonium bicarbonate and ammonium carbonate plant at Ludwigshafen by 30% in a move designed to cope with rising demand for high-purity food additives on the world market. The upgrade is scheduled to be complete by early 2013.
"With our technical expertise and the high quality standard of our plant, which is geared towards the most stringent requirements in the production of food additives, we are ideally placed to further strengthen our market-leading position in this segment," says Dr. Thomas Wehlage, Senior Vice President and Head of the Inorganic Chemicals business unit.
Karl Chang, Regional Head of Business Management Inorganic Chemicals Asia Pacific, adds, "The extra capacity at Ludwigshafen will enable us to meet growing demand for high-purity food additives in the Asia Pacific region too."
Ammonium bicarbonate is an important synthetic leavening agent for bakery products. The Ludwigshafen plant is not only GMP-certified (Good Manufacturing Practice) but also satisfies the high certification standards of the British Retail Consortium (BRC). The plant also manufactures certified kosher and halal products. Certifications like these give customers the assurance of the highest standard of product safety so essential in the food industry.
