HOUSTON (ICIS)--BASF will close its fuel cell site in New Jersey as it reworks its fuel cell systems activities to focus on catalysts and adsorbents, the Germany-based chemical major announced on Thursday.

The Somerset, New Jersey, plant produces membrane electrode assemblies for high-temperature polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell systems, the company said in a news release.

About 25 employees will be affected by the closure, BASF said.

BASF started up the fuel cell systems plant in 2009.
