BEIJING, CHINA/LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF and China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec) have completed a joint feasibility study and taken the next steps in the establishment of a world-scale isononanol (INA) plant in Maoming, Guangdong, China. The companies will form a new 50-50 joint venture, BASF MPCC Co Ltd, which is expected to begin production by the middle of 2015.

“The completion of the joint feasibility study marks an important milestone for our INA business, helping us serve the increasing demand for next-generation plasticizers in China. Integration into the MPCC operations also allows for a very competitive feedstock supply,” said Dr Albert Heuser, President, Asia Pacific, BASF.
