The article reports on the increase in Chinese toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) prices following an explosion at Hebei Cangzhou Dahua's plant. Hebei Cangzhou Dahua shut its 30,000 tonne/year TDI plant after the dinitrotoluene (DNT) unit exploded. Many end-users in eastern and southern China suggest TDI prices will rise because of speculative trading rather than a genuine supply shortage.
