Industrial Gases

Industrial gases are volatile substances that must be handled with great care and caution. When producing these gases in our world-scale plants, we ensure that safety is the top priority. And, of course, we guarantee reliably high quality. When lightweight meets grounded, it’s because at BASF, we create chemistry.

Industrial gases are used in many industries around the clock: in the chemical industry, in science and research, in the food industry, in construction, and trades and crafts, in rubber and plastics processing and many other industries - whenever things have to be welded, frozen, powered, heated, industrially cleaned, ventilated and tested. That’s why our world-scale plants are a key element of the BASF Verbund, especially at the Ludwigshafen site.
