This article reveals the plans of a BASF and Dow Chemical joint venture to conduct a feasibility study into the construction of a toluene diisocyanate facility at a site in Europe. The plant will have an annual capacity of 300,000 tonnes/year, and, if the study is positive, will start operations in 2011. A spokeswoman for BASF stated that the plant's location will determine the know-how used. If it is a BASF site, BASF technology will be adopted, and vice versa.
