LUDWIGSHAFEN – Global chemicals company BASF is to expand production of a number of its biomass-based raw materials, several of which are key ingredients in the manufacture of textile fibres.

The chemical giant is to ramp up the bio-based production of tetrahydrofuran (THF),  1,4-butanediol (BDO), and polytetrahydrofuran (PolyTHF), all of which are used as raw materials in elastane production, at its flagship plant in Ludwigshafen, Germany, as well as at its facility in Geismar, Louisiana. The BASF plant in South Korea has also been certified for the production of PolyTHF.
