Bayer MaterialScience wins approval to build German TDI plant

February 24/2012

(bayer) -- Bayer MaterialScience can begin construction in Dormagen of a new world-scale plant for a key plastics precursor. The Cologne regional administration has now granted the permit for an early start to construction, clearing the way for the extensive construction work to begin promptly.

The final operating permit is expected in the spring. Plans call for the construction of a EUR 150 million high-tech plant in Dormagen for the particularly ecological production of the chemical TDI (toluene diisocyanate), which is required for flexible polyurethane foam.

"We are pleased that the construction for this important project can now begin and be completed within the next two years as planned," says Dr. Joachim Wolff, head of the polyurethanes business and member of the Executive Committee of Bayer MaterialScience. "With an annual capacity of 300,000 metric tons, the future world-scale plant is the final building block of a long-term investment strategy in Dormagen in addition to being a key element for optimizing our isocyanate production in Europe."

 


In the medium term, it will replace the existing plants for the production of TDI in Dormagen and Brunsbuttel. Bayer MaterialScience expects demand for this precursor for flexible polyurethane foams to continue to grow.
