Ludwigshafen, Germany -- Chinese vice-premier Zhang Dejiang visited BASF's Ludwigshafen Verbund site 11 Sept, together with a high-ranking economic delegation during an official visit to Germany.
Zhang discussed topics such as product safety and energy efficiency with BASF's chairman Dr Jürgen Hambrecht and Hong Kong-based board member Dr Martin Brudermüller.
BASF is currently negotiating with the Chinese authorities over plans to build a 400 kilotonnes per annum plant to make MDI (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) at a site in Chongqing, in south central China, east of Sichuan Province. Chongqing is a major municipality, often cited as one of the fastest growing cities in the world, with a population of about 31 million.
