BASF to build worlds largest single-train TDI plant in Europe

May 26/2011

(BASF) -- BASF will build the worlds largest single-train TDI (toluene diisocyanate) plant in Europe. The plant will have a capacity of 300 KTa and will be fully integrated with precursor production. The TDI plant will be located at one of the companys integrated Verbund sites in Antwerp, Belgium or Ludwigshafen, Germany and will start production in 2014. Engineering is underway and the final site selection will be announced shortly. TDI is a key component used for polyurethane foams.

TDI is a key component for the polyurethanes industry. To a large extent it is used in the automotive industry (e.g. seating cushion and interior applications) as well as in the furniture segment (e.g. flexible foams for mattresses, cushions or wood coating).

BASF is a leading supplier of basic products for polyurethanes and operates TDI plants in Geismar, Louisiana; Schwarzheide, Germany; Yeosu, Korea; and Caojing, China.
