BASF to build new plant in Nanjing

5 March 2014
Chemicals giant BASF is to build a new production plant to manufacture specialty amines at its existing wholly-owned site in Nanjing Chemical Industry Park. The plant, which is scheduled to come on stream in late 2015, will have dimethylaminopropylamine (DMAPA) and polyetheramines (PEA) as the main products.

“The investment is driven by the increasing consumption of personal care products by the growing middle class in China and in Asia,” said Dr Guido Voit, Senior Vice President, BASF Intermediates, Asia-Pacific. “Additionally, the development in the construction, wind energy and coatings industries in China and other emerging countries in Asia will continue to drive demand for PEA.”

DMAPA is mainly used in the production of betaines, which are used as co-surfactants in personal care products such as shampoo and body wash. PEA is an intermediate chemical for epoxy curing agents used in the production of plastics, polyurea coatings, adhesives, reaction injection moulding and wind blade composites.
