Bayer Slates TDI Plant For Germany
Bayer MaterialScience plans to invest roughly $200 million in a 300,000-metric-ton-per-year toluene diisocyanate (TDI) plant in Dormagen, Germany. TDI is a precursor for flexible polyurethane foam. The company says the plant will use new technology that cuts energy use by up to 60% compared with conventional plants. The technology is already being installed at a plant that is set to open near Shanghai next year. The Dormagen plant will be Bayer’s sole European TDI facility after it opens in 2014, the company says.
