A new hexamethylene diamine (HMD) plant will be built in Chalampé/France by BASF. The new plant is set to increase the company’s annual HMD production capacity to 260,000 tons. Production is expected to start in 2024.
Furthermore, BASF SE, Ludwigshafen/Germany, will expand its polyamide (PA) 66 production in Freiburg/Germany starting 2022. The planned investments will further expand the PA 66 business that BASF acquired from Solvay in 2020.
HMD is a precursor used in the production of high-quality PA 66 plastics and coating raw materials. Among other things, these products are used in the automotive industry as well as in the production of special fibers.
