Poland's ZAP inks deal to sell CPL to Chinese firms

Feb '12
Zaklady Azotowe Pulawy (ZAP), one of the leading Polish chemical companies, has signed four agreements to sell caprolactam (CPL) to Chinese companies.

The deal envisages ZAP selling CPL worth 315 million zloty (€75.3 million) to the Chinese firms.

The latest agreement has come close on the heels of the Polish company announcing a joint venture partnership with Zaklady Azotowe Tarnow (ZAT), another Polish company, to construct a CPL plant, which is likely to come up either in China or Taiwan.

China's domestic CPL production is rising at a fast pace, but still it is unable to meet the current domestic demand of 1.34 million tons.

China is currently the world's largest importer of CPL and the Chinese firms are expected to import about 620,000 tons of CPL in 2012, according to Hubert Kamola, Sales Director at ZAP.

ZAP is based in Pulawy, in Poland's eastern province of Lublin, and has a CPL production capacity of 70,000 tons per annum, most of which is sold in Germany and Southeast Asian markets.

In 2011, ZAP's CPL sales in Southeast Asian market rose by eight percent, while its total sales increased by only three percent.
