BASF will continue to manufacture sterols without interruption at other sites in Europe and the United States.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — BASF plans to close its sterols production site in Pasadena, Texas, by the end of the year, a move that will affect about 40 positions. The Pasadena site is far from key raw material sources and does not allow BASF to remain competitive in the marketplace, according to the company.

BASF will continue to manufacture sterols without interruption at other sites in Europe and the United States. BASF will increase sterol extraction capacity at its site in Boussens, France.

The Pasadena site manufactures wood and vegetable sterols, which are used in dietary supplements and as functional ingredients in food products to reduce cholesterol.
