TDI and MDI investments at BorsodChem

Furthermore, the company is carrying out a revamp of its MDI-2 plant at Kazincbarcika, Hungary, to increase its capacity from the current 150 kt to 240 kt. This investment will further improve product quality as well as consistency and stability of supply. According to the company, BorsodChem is the only European manufacturer that will increase its capacity of MDI this year and together with the 800 kt MDI capacity of its sister company Yantai Wanhua Polyurethanes, the overall Wanhua Group will advance to become the world's number three MDI manufacturer.In order to complete the revamp of the Kazincbarcika MDI-2 plant, BorsodChem will need to shut down the plant for a period of seven weeks, starting from 22 July 2011. Although the revamp will be carried out in a period of lower market demand, it is anticipated that it will lead to the one or other business disruption. BorsodChem says it will endeavour to reduce the impact as much as possible, but the available material will be on strict allocation.
