Sinopec and BASF are considering expanding the Nanjing joint venture

Sinopec and BASF, the world's leading chemical company, are considering further expanding the Nanjing joint venture Yangzi Petrochemical BASF Co., Ltd. (Yangba company) by expanding the existing ethylene oxide unit and building a new neopentyl glycol unit. At the same time, Yangba company will also strengthen the acrylic acid value chain by adding acrylic acid units and butyl acrylate units. These two units are scheduled to be put into operation in 2014

together with the superadsorptive resin unit (SAP) under construction, it is also expected to start production in 2014. Yangba company will strengthen its support to the home care and health industry, coating, textile and construction industries

Dr. Hou Yuzhe, President (functional management) of BASF Asia Pacific region and President and chairman of Greater China region, said: by expanding ethylene oxide and neopentyl glycol, which are important and reduce energy consumption in the production process, chemical intermediates and basic raw materials, together with world-class acrylic acid devices, butyl acrylate devices and super absorbent resin devices, BASF can further strengthen the status of C2 and C3 value chain production base. These actions are the starting point for us to provide comprehensive innovative solutions to almost all industries, highlighting our confidence in the development of the Asia Pacific region and the Chinese market

Chang Zhenyong, deputy chief engineer of Sinopec and director of the chemical business department, said: by deepening the joint venture and cooperation, Sinopec and BASF not only meet the social demand for high-end fine chemicals, improve the quality of life of the public, but also further give play to their advantages in resources, technology, talents, market and management, and enhance their core competitiveness. Through cooperation, Sinopec and BASF have achieved win-win and value growth

both parties are considering expanding the capacity of the existing ethylene oxide plant, which has a capacity of 330000 tons/year. Ethylene oxide is a basic chemical, which is mainly used to produce ethylene glycol. It can also be used to produce surfactants for detergents and detergents, and can also be used as raw materials for ethanolamine, ethylene glycol ether and polyurethane products

in addition, the construction of a neopentyl glycol device for 1600 ton and 2000 ton crawler cranes is also under consideration. Due to its excellent chemical and thermal stability, neopentyl glycol is a unique polyol that can show excellent performance in several terminal applications. It is mainly used as the basic raw material of polyester resin coating, unsaturated polyester, lubricating oil and plasticizer products. As the world's leading producer of neopentyl glycol, BASF is the only enterprise with production facilities in Europe, North America and Asia for the manufacture of such products, mainly modified plastics. Because its production benefits from reverse integration, BASF brings customers a highly reliable supply

Dr. kediwen, President of youngbar company, said: we see the huge market potential of these products in China and surrounding regions. These modern devices settled in Nanjing will further strengthen our integrated base

the construction of the super absorbent resin device of Yangba company broke ground in May, 2012. The unit capacity is 60000 tons/year. Super absorbent resin is a kind of material that can absorb and store 50% of the self weight liquid in the automotive industry and aircraft manufacturing, which has always been the most important industrial sector in Britain. This product is white powder and is mainly used in the production of baby diapers, adult diapers and female hygiene products

acrylic acid is an important raw material for the production of super absorbent resin. Butyl acrylate is a kind of acrylate, which is used as the raw material for the production of adhesives and surface coatings

Yangzi Petrochemical BASF Co., Ltd. is a joint venture established by BASF and Sinopec in 2000 with a 50:50 investment ratio
