Chemistry and Water Treatment


BASF Corporation is the largest affiliate of BASF SE and the second largest producer and marketer of chemicals and related products in North America.

Verbund is a BASF strength. The Verbund principle enables us to add value as one company through efficient use of our resources.

With its six Verbund sites and 338 additional production sites, BASF supports customers and partners in almost every country in the world. Verbund is all about intelligent interlinking of production plants, energy flows and infrastructure. Also, know-how and customers are intelligently connected to each other.

The Verbund system creates efficient value chains that extend from basic chemicals right through to high-value-added products such as coatings and crop protection agents. In addition, the by-products of one plant can be used as the starting materials of another. In this system, chemical processes consume less energy, produce higher product yields and conserve resources. In that manner, we save on raw materials and energy, minimize emissions, cut logistics costs and exploit synergies. These solutions enable BASF to sustain competitiveness in every world region while making our customers more successful.

The Verbund principle extends beyond production and technology to embrace our employees. We combine and interlink the experience and expertise of our workforce to form the best team.
