The MDI plant Brunsbüttel will see a rise in production capacity to 420,000 metric tons a year. The plan is to invest roughly €100 million in expansion of the high tech production plant. The project is part of the phased optimization concept announced previously for isocyanate production in Europe.

 

BRUNSBUTTEL, GERMANY: Bayer MaterialScience plans to invest roughly € 100 million in the expansion of the high-tech production plant for MDI (diphenylmethane diisocyanate) at the Bayer Brunsbüttel Industrial Park in Germany. The project is part of the phased optimization concept announced previously for isocyanate production in Europe. The first of the co ordinated phases is the construction of a new high-tech production plant for TDI (toluene diisocyanate) in Dormagen with an annual capacity of 300,000 metric ton per annum (tpa). The facility is scheduled to come on stream in 2014. Somewhat later, the annual capacity of the existing MDI plant in Brunsbüttel will be expanded from 200,000 metric ton to a total of 420,000 tpa. The TDI plant at the site will be converted to MDI as part of this measure.

 

“This investment is a clear commitment to the Brunsbüttel site. The planned world-scale MDI production facility is intended to strengthen the site and to provide long-term job security at the plant and in the region,” said Dr Tony Van Osselaer, Member of the Bayer MaterialScience Board of Management. Starting the scoping process in May 2011, the plant is scheduled for commissioning in 2015/2016. The plastics industry expects global demand for MDI and TDI to continue to rise and this expansion will help Bayer to experience long-term growth.
