DORMAGEN, GERMANY: The Cologne district authority has granted Bayer MaterialScience the permit to build and operate the new high-tech facility for the production of the chemical TDI (toluene diisocyanate) at Chempark Dormagen. With an annual capacity of 300,000 metric tonne, the future world-scale plant is a key part of a long-term investment strategy at Bayer MaterialScience to turn its Dormagen site into a global technology centre for the development and production of polyurethanes.

“We are delighted that the approval process has been successfully completed and we can press ahead with our construction work as planned,” said Dr Joachim Wolff, Member of Executive Committee responsible for the Polyurethanes business unit, Bayer MaterialScience.

“This innovative high-tech process marks the start of safe and eco-friendly world-scale polyurethane production that makes the best possible use of energy and resources. Compared with a conventional plant with the same capacity, the new facility will reduce energy consumption by up to 60 per cent and require as much as 80 per cent less solvent. This will also give us a decisive competitive edge,” added Wolff.
