Who we are

Our sites in Ireland


At Cork we develop solutions for metal recovery through our solvent extraction technologies. We work on solutions for the energy-saving, efficient and environment-friendly recovery of metals from ores such as copper, nickel, uranium and vanadium.

We export LIX® reagents to customers in many countries, including the US, Canada, Peru, Chile, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, Australia and China. We recover Alumat, a by-product Aluminium chloride solution, as a saleable product through a combination of recycling, concentration and purification technologies.

The Cork site was established in 1975 to manufacture speciality chemicals for the mining industry. BASF acquired it from Cognis in 2010.


BASF Ireland Financing Platform commenced business on October 1, 2018 from its new prime office location in Dublin’s City Quay. BASF Ireland Financing Platform was established to take over the group financing activities of BASF Belgium Coordination Center Comm.
