On 20 August, 2020, Sichuan Hebang Biotechnology Co., Ltd. (Sichuan Hebang) announced that some of its production lines, including those manufacturing glyphosate products, had stopped working temporarily because of the flood swamping its factories in Wutongqiao District, Leshan City, Sichuan Province on 18 August.

²  The integrated soda production lines (capacity: 900,000t/a) and glyphosate production lines stopped working, so did the methionine production facilities.

²  Sales of brine and natural gas of Sichuan Hebang Salt Co., Ltd. and Leshan Yongjiang Industry Co., Ltd. have been paused because of the suspension of the above-mentioned production lines.


The unflooded 300,000t/a integrated soda production lines of the company have been in normal operation.
