BASF raises prices of carboxylic acids

Effective immediately, or as existing contracts permit, BASF is raising its prices for Formic Acid, Propionic Acid and 2-Ethyl-hexanoic Acid (2-EHA) in Europe.

The new increased prices are as follows:

  • Formic Acid, 85%: + 80 Euro/ton
  • Formic Acid, 99%: + 100 Euro/ton
  • Propionic Acid + 90 Euro/ton
  • 2-Ethylhexanoic Acid + 70 Euro/ton
BASF's customers successfully use formic acid and mixes containing formic acid in multiple applications. In animal nutrition, they serve to improve feed hygiene and digestion, and as a result allow food of animal origin to be produced in a particularly eco-efficient manner.

BASF is the world's leading producer of formic acid, with production plants at its integrated Verbund sites in Ludwigshafen, Germany, and Nanjing, China.
