Internships in mechanics

Styrolanlage Standort Ludwigshafen. Die Styrol-Wertschöpfungskette beginnt im Steamcracker. Hier werden aus dem Rohstoff Naphta (Rohbenzin) u. a. Ethylen und Benzol gewonnen. Beide Grundchemikalien sind Ausgangsprodukte für Styrol.

Styrol ist Einsatzstoff für die Herstellung von Dispersionen, vor allem aber von Schaumstoffen und anderen Kunststoffen. Sie stecken in Tausenden verschiedenen Endprodukten: in Autos, Gebäudedämmung, Verpackungen, Haushaltsgeräten, Staubsaugern oder Druckern. Abdruck honorarfrei. Copyright by BASF.

Styrene Plant Ludwigshafen. The styrene value adding chain begins in the steam cracker. This is where, among others products, ethylene and benzene are extracted from the feedstock naphtha (petroleum).  Both basic chemicals are used as raw materials in the production of styrene. Styrene is used to manufacture dispersions but above all foams and other plastics. They are found in thousands of different end products: cars, building insulation, packaging, household appliances, vacuum cleaners and printers. Print free of charge. Copyright by BASF.
