Chemical company BASF recently announced that it is investing a “mid-range double-digit euro million sum” into its silica plant in Düsseldorf, Germany.

“We want to continue serving our customers with high-value silicates and support them in their growth through a further improvement in supply security,” said Soeren Hildebrandt, Senior Vice President, Home Care, I&I and Industrial Formulators Europe, BASF.

“This investment also helps to meet the rising demand for silicates and strengthens our leadership in Western European markets.”

The Düsseldorf-Holthausen plant is reportedly one of the world’s largest and the silicates produced there are used in many applications, including as thickeners in mortars and plasters, in foundry molds and mineral paints and as surface sealants in the construction industry.
