Fire at BASF's Ludwigshafen facility under control

28-Feb-08
A fire at BASF's Ludwigshafen plant was caused by a malfunction in the steam cracker's internal steam system. An operational malfunction at its Ludwigshafen plant triggered safety procedures that include burning off crude gas, creating a firey glow over the plant that is visible from a distance, as well as a loud hissing sound. All safety systems are functioning as expected, and the affected part of the plant, the steam cracker, will likely start operating without further trouble during the day.
