Butadiene capacity expansion in Wesseling

Start of the debottlenecking project will be in mid-2012; it is expected to be finished in 2013. Capacity will be expanded from 170,000 t/y to 238,000 t/y.
The butadiene from Wesseling mainly finds use in TPEs for roofing and asphalt applications as well as in latex and synthetic rubber for tyres.
