BMS to invest €100 million in Germany

By Gerald Ondrey |

Bayer MaterialScience AG (BMS; Leverkusen, Germany; www.bayermaterialscience.com) plans to invest roughly €100 million in the expansion of the high-tech production plant for MDI (diphenylmethane diisocyanate) at the Bayer Brunsbüttel Industrial Park in Germany. The project is part of the phased optimization concept announced previously for isocyanate production in Europe. The first of the coordinated phases is the construction of a new high-tech production plant for TDI (toluene diisocyanate) in Dormagen with an annual capacity of 300,000 metric tons (m.t.) per year. The facility is scheduled to come on stream in 2014. Somewhat later, the annual capacity of the existing MDI plant in Brunsbüttel will be expanded from 200,000 m.t./yr  to a total of 420,000 m.t./yr. The TDI plant at the site will be converted to MDI as part of this measure. "This investment is a clear commitment to the Brunsbüttel site. The planned world-scale MDI production facility is intended to strengthen the site and to provide long-term job security at the plant and in the region,” says Tony Van Osselaer, member of the Bayer MaterialScience board of management. The responsible authorities are expected to initiate the first step,…
