2018-07-13    [Source:Everchem]

“Three and a half years after the planned start, a new push: As the chemical company BASF announced, the Ludwigshafen plant for the production of the chemical TDI is again in the test mode.

“The plastic precursor TDI is used worldwide, among other things for the production of seat cushions in the automotive and furniture industry. But it will take a few more weeks before the chemical company can fully go into operation with the plant, a spokeswoman said. First of all, various individual parts of the system would have to be tested.
Thousands of tons of carcinogenic material gets into mattresses

“Only in March, the billion-dollar project had a new reactor. BASF has always had problems with the system. Most recently, a carcinogenic substance had been in the TDI for several weeks due to a technical defect, from which, among other things, mattresses were produced. BASF had to recall thousands of tons, resulting in damages of 30 million euros. In the future, BASF intends to produce around 300,000 tonnes of the globally popular chemical TDI per year.”
