Bayer celebrates Ground Breaking for Plant Expansion in China

Bayer Material Science is increasing its production capacities in the Asia/Pacific region to meet the continued growth in demand there for raw materials for coatings and adhesives. Ground was broken at the site in Shanghai, China, in March 2014 for a new plant for the production of the precursor hexamethylene diisocyanate (HDI).

Ground breaking for the new project took place on March 24, in Shanghai, China.

Shanghai, China –  With an annual capacity of 50000 t, it will be one of the largest facilities of its kind in the world, and production there will be efficient and ecological with a maximum of safety. Completion is scheduled for 2016. Bayer already has one HDI plant in Shanghai, which was expanded in 2013 from its original annual capacity of 30000 t. The new plant will utilise gas-phase technology, which requires substantially less energy and solvent than conventional processes.
