BASF-SINOPEC plan capacity expansion of ethylene steam cracker

19
Mar '08
BASF and China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec Corp.) submitted the technical and commercial feasibility study for the approval of the planned $900 million expansion of their joint chemical Verbund site in Nanjing to the Chinese government. The site is operated by the joint venture BASF-YPC Co. Ltd. (BYC).

The completion of the study was formalized by Wang Tianpu, President of China Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec Group) and Dr. Martin Brudermüller, member of the Board of Executive Directors of BASF SE, at a signing ceremony in Beijing.

The main pillars of the expansion are:

• Expansion of the steam cracker from 600,000 to around 750,000 metric tons of ethylene per year.

• Expansion of the ethylene oxide (EO) plant and development of EO derivatives to strengthen the ethylene value chain by producing non-ionic surfactants for detergents and the solvent butylglycol ether. New projects regarding production of ethanolamines and ethyleneamines for agrochemicals and dimethylamine (DMA-3) for flocculants.

• Development of the C4 value chain including C4 specialties: Butadiene and isobutene as chemical raw materials, 2-propylheptanol for a new-generation plasticizer and polyisobutene derivatives as fuel and lubricant additives.

• Extension of the acrylics value chain to produce superabsorbent polymers (SAP) for hygiene and industrial applications.

• Expansion of the existing oxo-alcohol and propionic acid plants.
