BASF to build New Plastic Additives Plant in Shanghai, China


BASF announced plans to build a new plastic additives plant at its Caojing site in Shanghai, China.


This world-scale plant, with an annual capacity of 42,000 tons, will produce antioxidants and associated forms and blends. It is expected to be completed in 2019, with commercial production to start by early 2020.

The plant will be built to reach high environmental standards and have one of the most efficient production processes. Located within the Caojing complex, it will also benefit from its proximity to our regional application center in Shanghai that provides technical support to polymer producers and to the converting industry within the region, said Hermann Althoff, Senior Vice President of BASF’s Performance Chemicals unit in Asia Pacific.

BASF runs a global production network and is the only supplier of plastic additives having production sites in Asia, Europe, North America and the Middle East.
