Flocculant Plant, Nanjing
At the end of 2012 BASF has started a new facility in Nanjing which produces chemicals for water treatment and paper manufacturing. These BASF’s wholly-owned, world-scale plants will be able to manufacture 40,000 tons of quaternized cationic monomers and 20,000 tons of cationic polyacrylamide annually.
These chemicals are the feedstock for organic flocculants which are crucial for municipalities and industries in waste water treatment. They are also used as retention and drainage aids in the paper industry. Key precursors are supplied by the adjoining facilities at the Verbund site of BASF-YPC.
