• Bishop Site: 20 years dedication to the pharmaceutical industry;
• Environmental-friendly production through BASF’s award-winning production process;
• Innovation in speed: Ibuprofen DC 85 helps to decrease production time and reduce cost.

In Bishop, Texas, BASF operates a world- class production plant for manufacturing ibuprofen, a commonly used pain killer drug substance, deploying an award-winning, environmental- friendly production technique that avoids the use of chromium salts and minimizes waste.

Bishop: 20 years dedication to the pharmaceutical industry
The BASF facility at the Bishop, Texas, site was built in 1991 and began operations on September, 1992. Since then, it has become one of the world’s most significant Ibuprofen plants. The FDA-audited and GMP-compliant production site is part of the OSHA (U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration) Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) and is recognized with the “VPP Star site” status. The VPP recognizes employers and workers in the private industry and federal agencies who have implemented effective safety and health management systems.

“We are proud of the Bishop facility team and their unparalleled dedication to sustainability, safety and reliability,” said Daniele Piergentili, Vice President BASF Pharma Ingredients and Services North America. “The ibuprofen products manufactured at our Bishop facility are the heart of our active ingredients portfolio and represent BASF’s long-term commitment to reliable supply of high-quality pharmaceutical ingredients to our partners.” BASF’s latest addition to the ibuprofen product range is Sodium Ibuprofen. The product dissolves quickly and thus provides faster pain killing effects for patients.

Leading in environmental-friendly production
BASF’s ibuprofen production process is an innovative, efficient technology that has revolutionized bulk pharmaceutical manufacturing. It provides an innovative solution to a prevalent problem commonly encountered in bulk API synthesis. Large volumes of aqueous wastes (often containing chromium salts) normally associated with such manufacturing are virtually eliminated. The anhydrous hydrogen fluoride catalyst/solvent is recovered and recycled. Furthermore, no other solvent is needed in any of the reaction steps, simplifying product recovery and minimizing fugitive emissions. The streamlined and continuously improved process makes it a waste-minimizing, environmentally friendly technology. The environmental superiority of the ibuprofen technology at BASF’s Bishop site was recognized with a Kirkpatrick Achievement Award for “outstanding advances in chemical engineering technology” in 1993 and a Presidential Green Chemistry Award in 1997.

Innovation with Ibuprofen DC 85
Today BASF produces several ibuprofen grades at its Bishop site including the API for the process-accelerating Ibuprofen DC 85 product, which has been specifically designed for direct compression into tablets. With Ibuprofen DC 85, BASF solved two of the most common industry challenges in direct compression of ibuprofen: persistent sticking to the machinery and the need for high concentration of drug substances. Ibuprofen DC 85 maximizes production speed while minimizing stickiness. The result is a reliable fault-free tableting production with higher output rates. Furthermore, expensive wet granulation and compaction processing steps are not needed, which reduces production costs.

For more than 75 years, BASF has been the world-leading supplier of generic active ingredients such as ibuprofen, theophylline, pseudoephedrine or caffeine to the pharmaceutical industry. In 2013, BASF will extend its portfolio by introducing a pharmaceutical grade of L-menthol to the market.
