December 20, 2019 marks the final day of production for Yangnong's Baotawan Plant. The 61-year-old canal-side chemical plant chooses to exit the city of Yangzhou, a milestone for Sinochem in implementing its sustainable development strategy.
Yangnong Chemical Group, controlled by Sinochem International, has already built up a new plant at the Sinochem Circular Economy Industrial Park in Lianyungang, a coastal city in Jiangsu province. The first-phase of the new plant has already put into operation in 2019.

The production facilities will be relocated to the Sinochem Circular Economy Industrial Park in Lianyungang, while the old site serves as the management, marketing, finance, and R&D center of Yangnong Group.

Yangnong's relocation to Sinochem Industrial Park in Lianyungang is a key step for Sinochem to build an innovative fine chemical flagship of China. The Lianyungang Park, a major strategic project of Sinochem, covers an area of over 900 acres. The construction kicked off in October 2017, aiming to build a world-class C3 production base.
