Wednesday, 27 September 2017

BASF will build a new specialty amines plant at its site in Nanjing Chemical Industry Park in China. The new multi-product plant can manufacture 21,000 metric tons per year and is scheduled to come on stream in 2019.

The plant will mainly produce 1,2-Propylenediamine (1,2-PDA), n-Octylamine (n-OA) and Polyetheramine (PEA).

Rising demand in Asia Pacific

Specialty amines are used as intermediates in a diverse range of industries and applications, such as epoxy formulations and biocides for the coatings industry. "This investment reflects our continued commitment to meeting the growing market demand in Asia Pacific,” said Stefan Blank, President, BASF Intermediates division. "The new plant will further strengthen our global leadership in these versatile intermediate products.”
