Im Hintergrund sind die Kolonnen der Aromaten-Anlage im Werksteil Friesenheimer Insel des BASF Verbundstandorts Ludwigshafen zu sehen. Bis zu 300.000 Tonnen Benzol kann diese Anlage dem Verbund im Jahr zur Verfügung stellen. Damit ist sie eine zentrale Verbundanlage, die direkt mit den beiden Steamcrackern verbunden ist. In den Crackern entstehen eine Reihe wichtiger chemischer Grundprodukte, darunter vor allem Ethylen und Propylen.
