Huntsman building a new MDI plant at Geismar, LA site

Huntsman, September 30, 2014

Huntsman Corporation has commenced preliminary engineering to expand production of methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) by investment in a new, world scale MDI plant at its Geismar, Louisiana site. The 400,000 metric ton expansion will leverage the significant advantages of the Geismar site, with its access to US shale gas, strong logistics base and excellent integration. The new capacity is expected to come on-stream in 2018 and will enable Huntsman to further support the growth of its customers worldwide. Huntsman’s 760 acre Geismar site is the largest integrated MDI production facility in the Americas region. MDI based polyurethanes are used in an extensive range of applications and markets - including construction, automotive, coatings and footwear - and provide key benefits of energy efficient insulation, comfort and well-being.
