With an area of approximately ten square kilometres the Ludwigshafen Verbund site is the world’s largest integrated chemical complex. As the headquarters of BASF, it is also the cradle of the Verbund concept, where production facilities, energy flows and logistics are networked together intelligently. This integration leads to efficient value-adding chains from basic chemicals to highly sophisticated products. The backbone of the Ludwigshafen production Verbund is a dense network of around 200 production plants that are connected to each other by over 2,850 kilometers of pipelines and more than 230 kilometers of rail track. At BASF’s Ludwigshafen site, some 8,000 sales products are produced with a total volume of 8.5 million metric tons per year from just a few raw materials, such as naphtha, rock salt and sulfur. The site also serves as a technology platform and the center of corporate research.

BASF - We create chemistry

BASF is the world’s leading chemical company headquartered in Germany. Its portfolio is organized into five segments: Chemicals, Performance Products, Functional Materials & Solutions, Agricultural Solutions and Oil & Gas.


The Chemicals segment consists of the Petrochemicals, Monomers and Intermediate divisions. In our integrated production facilities – our Verbund – we produce a broad range of basic chemicals and intermediates in Europe, Asia and North and South America.


The Performance Products segment consists of the Dispersions & Pigments, Care Chemicals, Nutrition and Health and Performance Chemicals divisions.


The Functional Materials & Solutions segment comprises the Catalysts, Construction Chemicals, Coatings and Performance Materials divisions. They develop and market system solutions, services and innovative products, particularly for the automotive, electronic, chemical and construction industries as well as for household applications, sports and leisure.


The Agricultural Solutions segment consists of the Crop protection division. We develop and produce innovative solutions for the improvement of crop health and yields, and market them worldwide.


BASF’s oil & gas activities are bundled in the Wintershall Group. We concentrate on exploration and production in oil and gas-rich regions in Europe, North Africa, Russia, South America and the Middle East. We are also active in the transport of natural gas in Europe.


An effective logistical infrastructure complements the Verbund. Keystones are the intermodal transport terminal (300,000 units/year), the modern logistics center (100,000 tons packed chemicals, eightfold throughput per year), harbor facilities and connection by block trains to Antwerp, Rotterdam, Eastern Germany and the Mediterranean Sea. Furthermore, ethylene and propylene pipelines link Ludwigshafen to other key chemical complexes.
