Bayer receives building permit for new TDI plant in Dormagen

"We are pleased that the construction for this important project can now begin and be completed within the next two years as planned," says Dr. Joachim Wolff, head of the polyurethanes business and member of the Executive Committee of Bayer MaterialScience. "With an annual capacity of 300,000 t, the future world-scale plant is the final building block of a long-term investment strategy in Dormagen in addition to being a key element for optimising our isocyanate production in Europe.” In the medium term, it will replace the existing plants for the production of TDI in Dormagen and Brunsbüttel. In April 2011, Bayer had submitted the approval documentation for the proposed facility at the Cologne regional administration. According to current plans, the new TDI plant will start production in 2014.
