December 14/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Jose Carlos Corral Montilla has succeeded Dr. Marko Grozdanovic to become BTC Europes new Managing Director and Vice President. The company is BASFs European sales organisation which focuses on specialty chemicals, reported Process Worldwie.

Thus, as of November 1, 2020, Jose Carlos Corral Montilla has become the new Managing Director and Vice President of BTC Europe.

Montilla joined BASF in 1998. He started his career in Leather and Textile Chemicals at BASF Spain in Barcelona, where he held different positions in supply chain, sales and product management. In 2005, he moved to Germany to take over a role in Global Strategic Marketing for Leather Chemicals and became Head of Product Management for Leather Chemicals in North America and EMEA two years later.

I am delighted to become a part of the BTC Europe team, says Montilla. The ability to connect with our customers, understand their needs and create value for them with passion and industry expertise is what drives us at BTC Europe. I am very much looking forward to grow and develop this business further at BTC Europe.

Montilla succeeds Dr. Marko Grozdanovic, who after four years at BTC Europe was appointed to Head of the Personal Care Europe regional business unit and new Managing Director of BASF Personal Care and Nutrition, effective October 1, 2020.

As MRC informed previously, German chemicals maker BASF said in early November it had put a project to build a petrochemicals complex in India worth up to USD4 billion on hold due to the economic uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. BASF signed a memorandum of understanding with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), Adani Group and Borealis AG in October 2019 to evaluate a collaboration to build the chemical site in Mundra, in Indias Gujarat state.

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

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,760,950 tonnes in the first ten months of 2020, up by 3% year on year. Only high density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) shipments increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market reached 978,870 tonnes in  January-October 2020 (calculated using the formula: production minus exports plus imports minus producers' inventories as of 1 January, 2020). Supply of exclusively of PP random copolymer 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.
