LONDON (ICIS)--BASF’s methyl di-p-phenylene isocyanate (MDI) facility in Antwerp, Belgium, has temporarily shut down and this is likely to last until the middle of this week, a company source said on Monday.
The shutdown has been caused by recent ongoing production problems. Output has been reduced at the facility since early August for technical reasons.
The plant has a nameplate capacity of 560,000 tonnes/year and is the largest MDI unit in Europe.
