“The plant is currently in equipment installation stage, and will come on stream at the end of September,” the source said.
Construction on the first phase of the plant started on 18 March last year.
Cangzhou Dahua expects to expand the unit’s capacity to 100,000 tonnes/year in the second phase, the source added, without disclosing a timeline.
The company, however, plans to complete the project in 2012, when the overall capacity of the TDI unit will be further increased to 180,000 tonnes/year.
Cangzhou Dahua operates two other TDI units at the same site with capacities of 30,000 tonnes/year and 50,000 tonnes/year respectively.
