Bayer MaterialScience: Strengthens Presence in China
Bayer MaterialScience has successfully started production at its new 350,000 tons/year diphenylmethane diisocyanate (MDI) complex at the Bayer Integrated Site Shanghai (BISS). The new world-scale plant is the largest MDI facility of its kind in the world. Furthermore, the company has now broken ground for a 250,000 tons/year toluene diisocyanate (TDI) plant at BISS which is scheduled to come on stream in 2010.
For Bayer MaterialScience, China is the most important market in the Asia Pacific region and currently its third largest national market worldwide. China is already the world’s largest single market for polycarbonates, and it is expected to become the largest global consumer of polyurethanes by 2015.
