BASF with curtailed ammonia production in Antwerp and Ludwigshafen

Due to the recent rise on natural gas prices in Europe, the economics for operating an ammonia plant in the region has become extremely challenging.

As a result, BASF has curtailed its ammonia production at its production sites in Antwerp and Ludwigshafen.

BASF will continuously monitor the gas price development and adjust its ammonia production accordingly.
