SINGAPORE (ICIS)--India’s Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilizers & Chemicals (GNFC) will start production at its second toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) plant in September this year, a company source said on Wednesday.
The nameplate capacity of the new TDI facility in Dahej, Gujarat, will be 50,000 tonnes/year. GNFC, India’s sole TDI producer, has an existing 17,000 tonne/year plant located about 45 kilometres away from the new unit.
TDI, together with flexible slabstock polyols, are raw materials for flexible foams, which are used to manufacture bedding, furniture and automobiles.
