BASF SE on Thursday said that it would further expand production capacity at its Verbund site in China along with state-controlled Sinopec Group.

The German chemicals company said it will expand several downstream chemical plants and build a new plant to support the local market. The plants are set to come on stream in 2023.

The site is operated by BASF-YPC Co., a 50-50 joint venture between BASF and Sinopec.
