BASF: Curtailed ammonia production in Antwerp and Ludwigshafen

On 27 September 2021, BASF announced that it has curtailed its ammonia production at its production sites in Antwerp, Belgium, and Ludwigshafen, Germany.

According to the company, 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.

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