LONDON (ICIS)--PCC Rokita plans to expand its polyol production at Brzeg Dolny in Poland, with a fourth line expected to come on stream in April 2012, a company source said on Monday.
This will raise nameplate capacity for polyols at the site from 70,000 tonnes/year from the existing three lines to 100,000 tonnes/year from four lines.
The expansion is part of PCC Rokita's long-term strategy and commitment to polyols, in particular advanced polyols.
“We need more capacity for advanced polyols,” said the company source, adding that advanced polyols are more production intensive than standard polyol grades.
Polyols are used in combination with isocyanates to form polyurethane (PU) foams, and find outlets, depending on grade, in the downstream bedding, furniture, automotive and construction sectors.
