  CO2 for plastic Last month, a pilot plant that produces an intermediate for polyurethane, using carbon dioxide as feedstock, started up at Chempark Leverkusen, Germany. The plant — designed, built and operated by Bayer Technology Services GmbH (Leverkusen; www.bayertechnology.com) — is part of the so-called Dream Production project, a €9-million collaboration between Bayer, RWE Power, RWTH Aachen University and the CAT Catalytic Center (which is run jointly by RWTH and Bayer). The kilogram-scale pilot plant features a proprietary zinc-based catalyst developed by scientists at Bayer and the CAT center. If the testing phase goes well, industrial production of CO2-based plastics should start in 2015, says Bayer. CO2 for urea Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI; Tokyo, Japan; www.mhi.co.jp) has signed a license agreement for CO2-recovery technology with National Fertilizers Ltd. (NFL; Noida, India; www.nationalfertilizers.com). NFL will use the technology to increase urea production at its existing Vijaipur Plant in Guna District, Madhya Pradesh State. The CO2-recovery plant is scheduled for completion in June, 2012. MHI’s proprietary KS-1 solvent will be used to recover CO2 from fluegas released at the…
