Bayer MaterialScience has installed a reactor weighing 25 metric tons at a site in Dormagen, Germany, where it plans to make polyols incorporating 20% carbon dioxide. The plant will cost $17 million and have 5,000 metric tons of capacity when it is completed next year. Bayer hopes to use the polyols in polyurethane foam mattresses.
