BASF to Increase Prices for Wet-End Paper Chemicals in the EMEA Region

Jan. 31, 2018 - BASF said that it will increase prices for wet-end paper chemicals in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa) by 4 to 12 percent, effective February 1, 2018 or as existing contracts allow.

The Germany-based chemical producer said the price hike is the result of “continued increases in cost of raw materials, transportation, and energy.”
