BASF SE (BAS.XE) plans to invest more than half a billion euros in a capacity expansion for integrated ethylene oxide and derivatives at its Antwerp site in Belgium.
The more than 500 million-euro ($546.8 million) investment will add about 400,000 metric tons per year to BASF's production capacity for the corresponding products, the German chemicals company said Monday.
BASF expects a sequential start-up to begin in 2022.
