SINGAPORE(ICIS)--China-based producer Cangzhou Dahua is planning to expand its total toluene diisocynate (TDI) capacity in Cangzhou, Hebei province, by around 50,000 tonnes/year, a company source said on Friday.
The company has currently a combined capacity of 150,000 tonnes/year in Cangzhou, the producer said in a filing to the Shanghai Stock Exchange on Thursday.
There are three TDI units at the site – a 30,000 tonne/year plant, a 50,000 tonne/year plant and a 70,000 tonne/year plant.
Cangzhou Dahua’s first step will be to expand the 50,000 tonne/year unit’s capacity to 80,000 tonnes/year, a company source said.
The next step will be to increase the capacity of the 70,000 tonne/year plant, although exact details for this expansion were not available.
