BASF constructs syngas plant at Verbund site

BASF has commenced construction of its syngas plant at the Verbund site in Zhanjiang, China. This world-scale syngas facility is scheduled to start up in 2025. BASF will adopt unique process concepts in the syngas plant to reduce carbon emissions, contributing to BASF’s sustainability goals.
The state-of-the-art facility will produce syngas and hydrogen for captive use within BASF’s production Verbund. The production technologies deployed in the syngas plant will mainly utilize CO2 off-gas to manufacture syngas.
The syngas plant can utilize further feedstocks, ensuring more reliable production. Electricity will be supplied by the site-wide grid which is expected to be powered with 100 % renewable energy by 2025.
