BASF: Expansion of MDI Production Capacity

BASF is expanding its production complex for diphenylmethane diisocyanate (MDI) in Antwerp, Belgium, to make it the largest of its type in the world. In the second quarter of 2007, the annual capacity of the two-train plant at BASF’s Antwerp Verbund site is to be expanded from 450,000 to 560,000 metric tons. At the same time, BASF plans to construct two plants at the site for the MDI precursors aniline and mononitrobenzene. The plants will have capacities of 180,000 metric tons (aniline) and 280,000 metric tons

(mononitrobenzene) and are scheduled to start operations simultaneously with the MDI expansion.

Antwerp is the only European site at which BASF produces MDI. Outside of Europe, the company produces MDI at its sites in Geismar, Louisiana; Yeosu, Korea; and Caojing, China.
