• First INA plant in China will provide important feedstock for next-generation plasticizers;
• State-of-the-art facility to start up in 2015;
• New plant to create around 100 new jobs.

At start-up in 2015, the plant, which is the first of its kind in China, will serve the increasing market demand for next-generation plasticizers. A newly-formed 50-50 joint venture company has been created, BASF MPCC Company Limited. The new plant will bring around 100 new jobs in Maoming.

“High quality and reliable plasticizers help underpin industrial growth, and with this plant we will be well positioned to serve China’s growing demands. Additionally, this project brings us a step closer to BASF’s strategic goal to better serve local industries with local production in Asia Pacific of approximately 75% by 2020. The new joint venture with SINOPEC also solidifies our already strong partnership, and demonstrates BASF’s long-term commitment to China,” said Dr. Albert Heuser, President, Functions Asia Pacific, President and Chairman, Greater China, BASF.

“This project is the first of its kind to bring BASF’s advanced INA technology into China, and to build a world-scale INA plant at Maoming Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone. It not only fills the country’s INA production gap, but also opens a new chapter for the strategic alliance between SINOPEC and BASF. It closely unites two strong parties in order to enjoy mutual benefits and develop business together, taking our relationship to a new level. I hope both shareholders continue to broaden our co-operation, and to explore how to further utilize SINOPEC Maoming, this area’s refinery products, and the public infrastructure, so as to maximize the production of BASF MPCC Company Limited and both shareholders’ business interests,” said Dr. Yu Xizhi, President of SINOPEC Corp. Maoming Company.

INA is used as the feedstock for the production of next generation plasticizers, including diisononyl phthalate (DINP) and non-phthalate plasticizer Hexamoll® DINCH®. DINP is widely used as a plasticizer in industrial applications such as automotive, wires, building and construction, while Hexamoll DINCH is BASF’s non-phthalate plasticizer for sensitive applications, including toys as well as food contact and medical applications.

BASF and SINOPEC have a longtime partnership and jointly operate BASF-YPC Co. Ltd., a 50-50 joint venture formed in 2000 between BASF and SINOPEC in Nanjing, China.
