Yesterday, BASF SE, Ludwigshafen, Germany, inaugurated its new Ultramid (polyamide 6 and 6/6.6) polymerization plant at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park in Shanghai, China. The new plant, with a capacity of 100,000 t/a, will further strengthen BASF’s local production and supply network and better serve the growing market in Asia Pacific.

“This is the first investment in polyamide polymerization for BASF in Asia Pacific and shows our strong commitment to this market,” said Dr. Kurt Bock, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of BASF. “The demand for polyamide products in the engineering plastics, fiber and film industries will continue to grow strongly, particularly in China,” commented Dr. Albert Heuser, President Functions Asia Pacific, President and Chairman Greater China, BASF.

The BASF wholly-owned plant was built at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park in Caojing which is also home to a world-scale facility for integrated isocyanates, operated by BASF and partners. BASF operates Ultramid polymerization plants also in Ludwigshafen, Germany; Antwerp, Belgium; Freeport, USA; and São Paulo, Brazil. The production of polyamide for film, textile and carpet fiber as well as for engineering plastics applications is integrated into BASF’s global Verbund structure with polyamide intermediates (i.e. adipic acid, anolone, caprolactam), chemical raw materials (i.e. ammonia, cyclohexane, sulfuric acid), energy, by-product recovery, logistics and other services.
