BMS: Increase of TDI Production in China
Bayer MaterialScience AG, Frankfurt am Main/Germany, intends to boost the annual capacity of the planned plant for producing toluene diisocyanate (TDI) in Shanghai from 160,000 to 300,000t. This Bayer subgroup is harnessing an innovative process technology in the construction that, among other things, enables investment and energy costs to be dramatically reduced. The company is planning to invest a total of around USD 1.8 billion at the Shanghai site by 2009. The integrated Shanghai site is intended to become a central base in its production network in the Asia-Pacific region. The approval procedures for expanding capacity have already been initiated.
