BASF will have to stop TDI production in Ludwigshafen

Due to the historically low level of the Rhine, BASF has to stop the production of TDI at its Ludwigshafen site.

The water level of river Rhine is currently on an all-time low, impacting transport by ship. Despite maximum shift to alternative means of transport (pipeline, trucks and rail), not all raw materials can be supplied to BASF’s Ludwigshafen site.

Rhine gauge leads to production stop

Therefore, BASF will have to stop the TDI production in Ludwigshafen. Restart of production depends on improved Rhine water level. BASF is in close contact with its customers.
