Ludwigshafen

Welcome to the Ludwigshafen site

With an area of approximately ten square kilometres the Ludwigshafen Verbund site is the world’s largest integrated chemical complex. As the headquarters of BASF, it is also the cradle of the Verbund concept, where production facilities, energy flows and logistics are networked together intelligently in order to utilise resources as efficiently as possible. As the region’s largest employer, we are committed to our environment in a variety of ways.

The Ludwigshafen site makes an important contribution to BASF’s success. In order for us to be successful at our headquarters, we need good relations with our neighborhood. Openness, transparency and the readiness to engage in dialogue – in good times as well as in difficult times – are therefore an important part of our corporate culture.

Eine Fläche von rund 64.000 Quadratmetern  - das entspricht 13 Fußballfeldern  - umfasst der Steamcracker II, die größte einzelne Anlage am Standort Ludwigs­hafen der BASF. Der Cracker ist auch das "Herzstück" der Verbundproduktion. Seit 1981 ist dieser Gigant in Betrieb und spaltet unter Zusatz von Wasserdampf bei etwa 850 Grad Celsius Rohbenzin auf. Dabei entstehen im wesentlichen Ethylen und Propylen, beides unverzichtbare Grundstoffe für die Herstellung vieler Produkte in Ludwigshafen.
