Bayer MaterialScience: Pilot Plant Opened

Bayer MaterialScience AG (BMS), Leverkusen, Germany, has opened a pilot plant for producing carbon nanotubes (CNT) at its Chempark Leverkusen. The company invested around EUR 22 million in the plant, which, with a capacity of 200t/a, is the biggest of its kind in the world. CNTs can, e.g. improve the mechanical properties of polymer matrices or provide specific electrical properties.

BMS has already operated a pilot plant in Laufenburg, Baden, with an annual capacity of 60metric tons, since 2007. The company hopes that the investment in Leverkusen will give it a lead in opening up potential applications for multi-walled carbon nanotubes.
