BASF chemical project to go ahead

BASF is to build a multi-billion-dollar chemical project in southwest China's Chongqing City, despite the fears of some Chinese environmentalists and residents, it said yesterday.

BASF has the experience and technology to ensure the environmental safety of the Chongqing MDI plant, said Tilman Krauch, president of BASF's regional functions and country management for Asia Pacific operations, at a press conference to publish the company's first report on its economic, environmental and social performance in China.

Krauch mentioned a similar project in Antwerp, Belgium, as a successful example of how BASF had been able to ensure environmental safety for a large chemical plant in a river's catchment area, which was also a densely-populated area.

Johnny Kwan, senior vice president of the BASF Group, said the public can use the BASF Website or call company officials directly to raise concerns and questions.

He denied that the report was issued in relation to current public pressure over environmental concerns.
