This article presents news briefs related to the chemical industry in Asia. Chinese biodiesel producer Gushan Group is considering raising $200m in an initial public offering in Hong Kong by the end of the year, making it the first biodiesel firm to list in the territory. It is using investment bank Credit Suisse to arrange the share sale, said an investment banker close to the deal.
