LONDON (ICIS)--BASF is to open a new fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) testing and research facility in Heidelberg, Germany, the chemical giant said on Wednesday.
The project will be based at the operations of wholly-owned BASF subsidiary hte Aktiengesellschaft (hte), a specialist in high throughput technology for catalyst research, and is expected to begin operations in mid-2014.
The company estimated the project cost as “multi-million” euros, but a company representative declined to disclose further financial information.
BASF runs another FCC catalysts lab in Iselin, New Jersey.
