    Yes, it's been a while - family and work got in the way of doing much exploring stuff ;)

    BASF's plant in Paisley is about 60 years old, and was producing around 18,000 tonnes of pigments a few years ago. However it's been downsizing, and will probably be closing completely soon. I've been visiting for a while - it's still very much a live site so it took a bunch of trips to see most of the interesting buildings before they were demolished.

    Anyway, pictures:

    currently undergoing complete demolition. 1 or 2 buildings left at the moment (and a chimney stack!)

    Land has been sold off for housing

    Just a bit of history. I think this site was originally ICI but sold out to Ciba-Geigy and then to BASF. Its closure was always on the cards from that time. The original technology seems to have moved to Canada with most of the people with the know-how. Another one bites the dust because of EU policy.
