Badger gets PYPC’s BPA plant contract in China

CAMBRIDGE, US: Badger Licensing LLC (JV between Shaw and ExxonMobil) has been awarded a contract by Proper Year Petrochemical Co (PYPC) to provide its proprietary technology and process design services for 60,000 metric tonne per annum bisphenol A (BPA) plant in Yangzhou, Jiangsu Province, China. The new BPA plant, which is scheduled for startup in 2013, will be integrated with PYPC’s cumene and phenol plants currently being constructed at the site and planned for startup in early 2012.

This facility will be the second cumene/phenol/BPA train owned and operated by an affiliate of Kingboard Chemical Holdings, the parent company of PYPC. The first train is located at Daya Bay, China and has been operating for several years. “Badger’s BPA technology provides high purity bisphenol A product suitable for optical grade polycarbonate and epoxy resin applications. The unique catalyst system provides exceptionally long catalyst life resulting in a low cost of production. We believe this BPA plant will help Kingboard become a market leader in the Chinese phenolics industry,” said Mark Healey, President, Badger.
