Dr. Maase began his career with BASF in 1999 in the Chemicals Research & Engineering department in Ludwig­shafen, Germany. His team developed and established BASF's BASIL technology, the first commercial process utilizing ionic liquids.

"I am confident that in his expanded role, Mr. Vanden Noort's extensive financial background, vision and leadership skills will be invaluable in our efforts to further enhance shareholder value," said Lee Thomas, president and CEO.
