BASF announced that it plans to increase its global Alkyl Polyglucosides (APG) production capacity with two production expansion projects at sites in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Jinshan, China.

Florham Park/USA — With Cincinnati coming online in 2018 and Jinshan in 2019, the company aims to better serve North American and Asian customers from regional supply points while reducing cross-regional volume flows and shortening lead times, the manufacturer announced in a press release. According to the chemicals producer, the investments in the US and China will ease the capacity concerns at the APG plant in Duesseldorf, Germany, in the future, enabling them to continue fulfilling strong European market demand in a timely manner.

APGs are surfactants used for mildness and foam improvement in personal care applications like facial wash, body wash and shampoo. They are also applied in home care for dish washing detergents, laundry and surface cleaning products, as well as for micro-emulsion formulations in agro applications. The home and personal care market is increasing its focus on ultra-mild ingredients and APGs play an important role in those formulations. Additional APG benefits include compatibility with various surfactants and other ingredients due to their non-ionic nature and manufacturing from 100 % natural and renewable feedstocks.
