Press Releases | | Return|

BOSTON (October 19, 2017) – Badger Licensing LLC (Badger) today announced that Zhejiang Petroleum & Chemical Co., Ltd. (ZPC) has selected Badger’s proprietary technology for a 240 KTA grassroots bisphenol A (BPA) plant being built in Daxiaoyushan Island, Daishan District, Zhoushan City, Zhejiang Province, People’s Republic of China. The contract includes technology license, process design and start-up services.

The new plant, one of the largest single train BPA plants in the world, will utilize Badger’s proprietary BPA technology. Basic engineering design work has begun and the plant is scheduled for mechanical completion and startup in early 2019. ZPC also selected Badger’s proprietary EBMaxTM1 and styrene technologies for a 1200 KTA grassroots EB/SM plant being built at the same site, which was separately announced.

“ZPC’s integrated complex being built in Zhoushan represents a major investment in the refining and petrochemical industry in China,” said Dana Johnson, president of Badger. “This is the second time ZPC has chosen one of Badger’s proprietary technologies for this large scale project, and we are proud to be associated with it. Badger’s innovative bisphenol A technology will enable ZPC to be a leader in the growing polycarbonate market in China. This award also reinforces Badger’s reputation and unique ability to supply world class technology and to do so at increasingly larger world scale capacities.”

Bisphenol A is a precursor to the production of epoxy resins and polycarbonate. Over 1.7 million metric tons of BPA capacity has been licensed by Badger since the technology was first offered for license in 2001.

Badger Licensing LLC, headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, is a venture of affiliates of TechnipFMC and ExxonMobil. Badger Licensing is principally engaged in developing, marketing, and licensing technologies for ethylbenzene, styrene monomer, cumene and bisphenol A.
