BASF raises prices of carboxylic acids

02-06-2008 | |

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

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.
