Badger to license BPA technology to Chinese firm

BOSTON, US: Badger Licensing LLC (Badger) announced that Lihuayi Weiyuan Chemical Co Ltd (Lihuayi) has selected Badger to provide its proprietary technology for a 120,000 metric tonne per annum grassroots bisphenol-A (BPA) plant being built in Lijin, Shandong Province, People’s Republic of China. The award includes technology license, process design, and start-up services. The new BPA plant is under construction and is scheduled for mechanical completion and startup in 2015. Lihuayi operates a cumene plant using Badger technology at the same site.

“Lihuayi is an important new phenolics producer in China. This is the second time they have chosen one of Badger’s proprietary technologies for their facility in Lijin. We believe this BPA plant will help Lihuayi become a market leader in the Chinese phenolics industry, and we look forward to expanding our relationship with them on this project and into the future,” said Stuart Agler, President, Badger.
