Alkylene oxides are highly reactive chemical compounds which we produce under
carefully controlled conditions in our world-scale plants. As a technology leader, we
are able to guarantee the highest safety standards and exceptional quality.
When controlled impulsive reactions lead to excellence, it’s because at BASF, we create chemistry.
Due to their high reactivity, they can be further processed into a wide variety of downstream products that are used in numerous industries. From PET bottles to functional clothing, detergents and furniture – alkylene oxides and glycols are part of our daily lives.
BASF continuously optimizes and invests in developing its technology and engineering. In this way, BASF ensures its plants operate efficiently, safely and reliably while offering consistently high product quality within each specification.
BASF is one of the few major companies worldwide that is completely integrated in the ethylene and propylene oxide value chain. BASF produces both ethylene and propylene – the starting materials for EO and PO – as well as all of the important direct derivates. Thanks to its size and Verbund structure, BASF is able to offer an extensive product portfolio of alkylene oxides and glycols.
CP produces alkylene oxides and glycols at its Verbund sites in Belgium, the U.S., Germany and China as well as in its joint venture in the Netherlands. BASF’s extensive sales network of contact people and service providers worldwide ensures reliable supply.
