The largest Verbund site in BASF Group is located in Ludwigshafen, Germany. The Verbund concept was developed and optimized here and later applied to other sites around the world.
In its home market of Europe, BASF additionally operates a Verbund site in Antwerp, Belgium. The cornerstones of BASF’s presence in the important North American chemical market are the sites in Geismar, Louisiana and Freeport, Texas, both of which operate according to the Verbund principle. These sites are further strengthened by the steam cracker in Port Arthur, Texas. In the fast growing Asia Pacific market, BASF operates two Verbund sites in Kuantan, Malaysia and Nanjing, China.
In 2020, we started construction of the first plants at the planned integrated Verbund site in Zhanjiang, China.
