BASF-YPC is a good example of BASF’s Verbund concept. Production plants are intelligently linked together via a network of pipelines. This saves logistics costs for transporting chem-icals, raw materials and energy. One example: excess heat from one production plant is used for production in a neighboring plant.
A steam cracker and nine other production plants produce high quality products. Over 90 percent of output of the Nanjing composite is for the Chinese market.
