The President of the BASF-YPC on a plant tour with the plant manager.
BASF-YPC Company Limited is jointly operated in Nanjing by BASF and China Petroleum & Chemical Company (Sinopec) as an integrated petrochemical Verbund site. The Verbund system achieves extremely efficient production and safety by clustering plants and re-using by-products.
In January 2012, both partners inaugurated the second phase of the site which involved the expansion of the existing steam cracker and the construction of additional plants. Further expansion is currently under consideration.
