BASF world-scale facilities for water treatment and paper chemicals in Nanjing, China.

NANJING, CHINA: BASF has begun production of chemicals for water treatment and paper manufacturing at the Nanjing Chemical Industry Park in Nanjing, China. These wholly-owned, world-scale production plants for quaternized cationic monomers (DMA3Q) and cationic polyacrylamide (cPAM) further strengthen BASF’s leading position in supporting the water treatment and paper industries in Asia.

The facility has an annual capacity of 40,000 tonne of DMA3Q and 20,000 tonne of cPAM, and is strongly backward integrated. Key precursors are supplied by the adjoining facilities at BASF-YPC Co, a 50-50 joint venture between BASF and SINOPEC which is one of six BASF Verbund sites worldwide.

“The completion of these facilities is an important milestone, allowing BASF to establish a globally cost-competitive supply for the water treatment industry. Production right at the heart of the water treatment industry in Asia further strengthens BASF’s position in this region as a supplier of innovative solutions,” said Dr Matthias Halusa, Head of Global Business Management, Water Solutions, BASF.
