BASF / Dow: Joint TDI Plant

BASF AG and The Dow Chemical Company are going to conduct a joint feasibility study for the construction of a state-of-the-art production plant for toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and precursors at one of their integrated sites in Europe. The plant would have an annual capacity of 300 000 t/a and would be the world’s largest such facility. The study will take into consideration factors such as location, technology and infrastructure. Should the project prove viable, the facility would start operation in 2011.

Following the joint development of a process to produce propylene oxide on the basis of hydrogen peroxide (HPPO technology), this current venture is the second recent cooperation between Dow and BASF that focuses on the polyurethane industry. In September 2006, the two companies laid the foundation for their first world-scale HPPO plant a BASF’s site in Antwerp, Belgium.
