As part of this collaboration, BASF will be the distributor of DCI-11 Plus ClearTrak™ – a concentrated corrosion inhibitor – to ethanol plants located within the US.

“We are excited to partner with Innospec and to add an industry-leading technology to our enzyme and chemistry portfolio. This partnership allows BASF to broaden our portfolio and offer DCI-11 Plus ClearTrak along with our industry-leading Sales and Technical Support,” said Jeffrey Carver, Sales Manager, BASF Enzymes LLC.
