BASF / Sinopec: Expansion of Nanjing Joint Venture

On the eve of the 10th anniversary of BASFYPC, BASF and Sinopec have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly explore the further expansion of their integrated petrochemical joint venture, BASFYPC Co., Ltd.

The new projects under consideration will extend the C3 and C4 value chains, including the construction of a new acrylic acid facility with a capacity of 160,000 tonnes per year, a new butyl acrylate plant, as well as capacity increases at the 2-propylheptanol, styrene monomer, and non-ionic surfactants plants. The superabsorbent polymers (SAP) plant, to be constructed as the final part of the ongoing expansion project, will be supplied with feedstock from the acrylic acid facility. A new worldscale hydrogen peroxide-propylene oxide (HPPO) facility is also included in the new investments under consideration. The new investments under consideration collectively total approximately USD 1 billion.

The new projects under consideration together with the current production plants provide raw materials for growing customer industries for environmentally-friendly industrial and household applications in China such as coatings or cleaning and detergents.

The final scope of the investments under consideration will be determined following joint feasibility studies for each of the projects.
