Partners on site

Other companies operate on the BASF Antwerpen grounds as well. These companies are an integral part of our operational processes and we refer to them as our "strategic partners".

Air Liquide

BASF and Air Liquide have been working in close partnership in Belgium for 45 years. The BASF site in Antwerp is also a key site for Air Liquide with a worldwide scale air seperation installation for the production of Oxygen (O2), Nitrogen (N2) and Argon (Ar) and two dedicated installations for hydrogen (H2) and carbonmonoxide (CO). Air Liquide's investment in Antwerp is sustained and continuous: in 2015 Air Liquide's second carbonmonoxyde (CO) plant was inaugurated in Antwerp.

The largest part of these industrial gasses are dedicated to a reliable supply of BASF. They are also one of the sources of the Air Liquide gas-pipeline network that supplies industries through the Benelux. The installations are operated by Air Liquide specialists.



Combinant (Combined Terminal Antwerp) is an open access railway terminal for intermodal transport. Its central location in the port of Antwerp and its partnership with various railway operators enable Combinant to offer an extensive European railway network. Combinant was founded as a joint venture between BASF, Hupac and Hoyer with support from the European authorities and the Flemish government. Replacing part of the road transport with railway transport reduces the burden on the environment.






Combinant numbers:

  • 5 railway tracks
  • 3 portal cranes
  • 1 reach stacker
  • 10 to 12 trains per day
  • 140.000 container moves per year
  • 30 to 40 jobs
