According to market sources, German chemicals producer BASF restarted its two crackers at Ludwigshafen, Germany.

The company reported that several plants and its two steam crackers started production but the North Harbour at the Ludwigshafen site is still unserviceable.

The larger and smaller crackers are able to produce 400,000 tons/year and 220,000 tons/year of ethylene, respectively.

The company had shut its derivatives units as a precaution following a fire at the site on October 17.
