Megaprojects in Asia
A once in a lifetime chance!
Asia, and China in particular, is of outstanding importance to our industry. It is both the largest market and the fastest growing market for the chemical industry. We are investing heavily in sites, assets and, last but not least, our local teams. With the three major investments in our pipeline, we will support customers in numerous industries and continue the success of our Asia strategy.”
BASF's innovations contribute to the growth of many key industries globally. Take advantage of the fantastic opportunity for working on multi-million megaprojects in Asia Pacific, supported by our smart manufacturing processes that deliver greater efficiencies and quicker go-to-market strategies for our customers.
BASFs €16.5 billion investment in Asia since 1999 speaks to our commitment to the region. We've built a system for developing innovative products quickly and efficiently at sites close to customers. We've invested nearly €180 million in our Innovation Campus Shanghai and earmarked a potential investment of up to US$10 billion for our new, most advanced Verbund site in South China. In India, we look to build our first CO2-neutral site that will be completely powered by renewable energy through a joint venture with an investment totaling about €2 billion.
BASF investigates establishment of a new Verbund site
Planned expansion of cooperation in China between BASF and SINOPEC
BASF will power the first plants of its Zhanjiang Verbund site in Zhanjiang, Guangdong province, using 100% renewable electricity. This came as a significant step for BASF to build its Zhanjiang Verbund site as a role model for sustainable production. With the first plant to be operational by 2022, the first plants will produce engineering plastics and thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) to serve the increasing needs of various growth industries in the South China market and throughout Asia.
BASF today celebrated for achieving consecutive 500,000 safe working hours for its initial phase of Guangdong Verbund site in Zhanjiang. This came as another substantial progress since its start of piling on May 30, 2020.
BASF today officially kicked off its Community Advisory Panel (CAP) in Zhanjiang. In the first session of the panel, 22 representatives from all walks of life in Zhanjiang participated. The CAP will be an important platform to establish two-way communication between BASF and the local community in Zhanjiang, ensuring the smooth progress of the BASF Guangdong Verbund site project, and further contributing to the sustainable development of the local community.
