Third largest Verbund site of BASF

Upon completion, the new Verbund site Zhanjiang will be the third largest Verbund site of BASF globally after Ludwigshafen, Germany and Antwerp, Belgium and is – according to the company – a role model of sustainable production both in China and globally. BASF plans to power the entire Zhanjiang Verbund site with electricity from renewable resources and targets to achieve 100 percent by 2025.
