BASF / Sinopec: Inauguration of Petrochemical Site in Nanjing

BASF SE and Sinopec Corp. today inaugurated the USD 1.4 billion second phase of their integrated petrochemical site in Nanjing, bringing crucial chemicals to the China market that will support the development of more sustainable local industries.

The existing steam cracker has been expanded to a total of 740,000 t/a of ethylene, along with the expansion of the existing ethylene oxide (EO) plant to 330,000 t/a, and the construction of a new EO purification unit with a capacity of 150,000 t/a. New plants in the expanded EO derivatives value chain include a new non-ionic surfactants plant with a capacity of 60,000 t/a; a new amines complex with a capacity of 130,000 t/a for the production of ethanolamines, ethyleneamines, and dimethylethanolamine; and the construction of a new DMA3 plant with a capacity of 25,000 t/a.

The site now has an integrated C4 complex comprised of a new butadiene extraction plant with a capacity of 130,000 t/a; a new isobutene extraction plant with a capacity of 60,000 metric tons per year; a new plant for highly reactive polyisobutene with a capacity of 50,000 t/a; and a new 2-propyl-heptanol plant with a capacity of 80,000 t/a.

On the occasion of the inauguration ceremony, the partners also announced further plans for the expansion of the site.

Construction of a superabsorbent polymer (SAP) plant with a capacity of 60,000 t/a will begin in mid-2012. Commercial production is planned for the beginning of 2014.

New projects to strengthen the C3 and C4 value chains include the construction of a new acrylic acid facility with a capacity of 160,000 t/a, a new butyl acrylate plant, as well as a capacity increase at the 2-propyl-heptanol plant.
