LONDON (ICIS news)--BASF's new 130,000 tonne/year cyclohexane (CX) plant at Friesenheim Island near its Ludwigshafen, Germany site is running at full rate and on-spec, a company official said on Friday.
 
The plant started operation on 14 December 2005, six weeks earlier than scheduled.
 
Built at a cost of Euro12m ($14.4m), the new plant enables BASF, a major consumer of cyclohexane in the production of caprolactam, to make significant reductions in its purchasing on the merchant market.
