BASF opens tert-butylamine plant in Nanjing, China

NANJING, CHINA: BASF announced the opening of its world-scale tert-butylamine (tBA) production plant at the Nanjing Chemical Industry Park in China. The plant is wholly-owned by BASF and is integrated into the production facilities of BASF-YPC Co Ltd in Nanjing, China.  With an annual capacity of 10,000 tonne, the new facility further strengthens BASF’s globally leading position as a supplier to the rubber and tire industry.

“The tBA plant is a vital element of our Asia Pacific strategy with a target to produce 75 per cent of the products we sell in the region. The production process is wastewater-free and minimizes emissions,” said Dr Albert Heuser, President, BASF Asia Pacific.
