Latest Progress of BASF Gasma MDI Capacity Doubling Project

The capacity expansion project for MDI at BASF's Verbund plant in geismar, Louisiana, is on schedule.

Over time, BASF aims to double its capacity from 300000 tons a year to about 600000 tons a year. By gradually increasing capacity, BASF will support the continued growth of its MDI customers in North America.

"The North American MDI market and our customers remain our focus and we are looking for this investment to support their growth," said Ramkumar dhruva, President of BASF`s monomer division. BASF supports customer growth by providing innovative polyurethane solutions to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. Examples of improved lightweight insulation materials for automotive and industrial buildings.

"The gasma base is well suited for this investment because of its existing infrastructure, competitive raw materials and continued strong business support from state and local governments. Through this complex, BASF will continue to be the leading MDI supplier in North America and even in the world. "

The first stage is the construction of a new MDI synthesis unit, which has been completed and put into operation. At the same time, an old MDI synthesis device will no longer be used.

Although the real-time capacity increase is limited, the new MDI production unit lays the foundation for future growth through the increase of upstream unit capacity.

The second phase of construction is currently in progress, and BASF will expand several upstream units, which will increase the total MDI production of gasma complex by about one third.

The second phase is expected to start in the second half of 2021.

The potential final stage goal is to complete by the middle of the decade. It is estimated that the project will make MDI capacity reach about 600000 tons / year.

巴斯夫美国盖斯马MDI产能翻番项目最新进展

巴斯夫位于路易斯安那州盖斯马(Geismar)的Verbund工厂的亚甲基二苯基二异氰酸酯(MDI)扩能项目正在按计划进行。

随着时间推移,巴斯夫的目标是将产能翻一番,从每年30万吨增至每年约60万吨。通过逐步增加产能,巴斯夫将支持其北美MDI客户的持续增长。

巴斯夫单体部门总裁拉姆库马尔·德鲁瓦(Ramkumar Dhruva)表示:“北美MDI市场和我们的客户仍然是我们关注的重点,我们正在寻求这项投资来支持他们的增长。”巴斯夫通过提供创新的聚氨酯解决方案,减少能源消耗和碳排放,支持客户增长。一些例子包括改进的建筑物隔热材料和汽车工业的轻质材料。”

盖斯马基地非常适合这项投资,因为它现有的基础设施、有竞争力的原材料以及来自州和地方政府持续的强大商业支持。通过这个综合设施,巴斯夫将继续成为北美乃至全球领先的MDI供应商。”

第一阶段是建造一套新的MDI合成装置,该阶段已完成并开始运行。同时,一套旧的MDI合成装置已不再使用。

尽管即时产能增加有限,但新的MDI生产装置通过上游装置产能的增加为未来的增长奠定了基础。

第二阶段的建设目前正在进行中,巴斯夫将扩大几个上游装置,通过这样做,将盖斯马综合设施的MDI总产量提高大约三分之一。

第二阶段预计将于2021年下半年启动。

潜在的最后阶段目标是在2025年前(by the middle of the decade)完成。预计该项目将使MDI产能达到约60万吨/年。
