Linuo Factory organic chemicals

In 2014, all production plants and the entire process technology were rebuilt a little outside of Wuhan. This facility was taken into operation entirely in the course of 2015. Further development of the oxidation products and chlorination processes of toluenes and their derivatives will take place gradually in the course of the next few years. A dedicated pipeline to the adjacent 800 KT Cracker ensures supply with the required raw materials on a high level.
