BASF Chongqing MDI: creating a new role in chemistry
when it comes to chemical plants, people always think of billowing black smoke, pungent odor, polluted river water and so on, and people living nearby have great opinions on this. BASF AG, a chemical plant headquartered on the banks of the Rhine, seems to want to rewrite the stereotype of chemical plants in people's minds. Today, Dr. tangguotai, who is a guest of "Chongqing story series of the world's top 500" program, will tell us about BASF's environmental protection history
"Chongqing people love to use iPad. The coat is not made of leather, but of synthetic PU leather. This is our technology." For the products produced by the chemical plant, Mr. tangguotai, general manager of Chongqing, said, "in fact, the MDI we provide is widely used, such as cars, refrigerators, sofas, building insulation, upstream and downstream resources and risk control system accumulation; Alibaba, and many other aspects, as well as the popular iPad leather case."
it is reported that MDI mainly produced by BASF AG is the main raw material for the production of polyurethane, such as refrigerators, freezers, solar water heaters and electric water heaters, imitation wood furniture, Pu plates, etc. It can be said that this chemical term that sounds a little strange is actually not far from our lives
however, the chemical industry is always accompanied by the by-product of "pollutants". How to control pollutants while producing chemical products so that they do not pollute the surrounding environment has always been a matter of public concern
as for the company's environmental protection issues, BASF said in the interview that longevity residents need not worry
"BASF has a history of 150 years. It has fully considered the geographical location of the middle and upper reaches of the Yangtze River, such as polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), polyimide (PI), polysulfone (PSF), polyether ketone (PEK), liquid crystal polymer (LCP), and has taken additional protective measures that have not been used in other regions." Mr. tangguotai explained, "it should be said that we have put forward the concept of multiple protection. Our environmental protection has a dual meaning, which is not only environmental protection and energy saving, but also the production itself is rarely polluted."
tangguotai said that in order to relieve the long-lived residents of their worries about the chemical plant, BASF's specially established community advisory committee will introduce to the people how the plant is produced and the safety and environmental protection measures in the plant
"before the construction of the project, the community advisory committee was established to collect the opinions and questions of the people. Threeorfour meetings will be held in a year, and I will go." Tangguotai said, "our idea is to establish a company that is candid and transparent, so we attach great importance to maintaining communication with stakeholders. If there is any doubt about the project, the committee can send resident representatives to visit BASF factory and have face-to-face communication with BASF board members, mainly about buffer failure."
