BASF to expand production capacity of acrylic dispersions in Malaysia

December 16/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- BASF to expand production capacity of acrylic dispersions in Malaysia, said Asiapacificcoatingsjournal.

BASF intends to double its acrylic dispersions capacity by constructing a new manufacturing line at its Pasir Gudang site in Malaysia.

The project aims to give a reliable supply of high-quality dispersion formulations to clients in the rapidly increasing ASEAN, New Zealand and Australian markets.

This new development also includes upgrading the facility's waste water treatment plant by adding a condensed water stripping system.

As MRC informed before, in early September 2019, SIBUR, the largest petrochemical comples in Russia and Eastern Europe, and BASF, Geman petrochemical major, agreed to closely cooperate on sustainable development to share their best practices. SIBUR held a design session on sustainable development in the petrochemical industry. At the event, BASF shared details on its new sustainability strategy and its integration into the company's overall strategy. The participants were also presented with the company's methods of environmental impact assessment and approach to the circular economy, which embraces opportunities for chemical recycling of plastics, such as the ChemCycling project. With chemical recycling, fossil resources for chemical production can be replaced with recycled material from plastic waste.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,589,580 tonnes in the first nine months of 2019, up by 7% year on year.  Shipments of all PE grades increased. The estimated PP consumption in the Russian market was 976,790 tonnes in January-September 2019, up by 4% year on year. Shipments of PP block copolymer and homopolymer PP increased.

BASF is the leading chemical company. It produces a wide range of chemicals, for example solvents, amines, resins, glues, electronic-grade chemicals, industrial gases, basic petrochemicals and inorganic chemicals. The most important customers for this segment are the pharmaceutical, construction, textile and automotive industries.
