Huntsman Corp. recently announced that it has commissioned engineering design studies to increase its global capacity for the manufacture of methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) through investment at its Geismar, LA, site.

“We are studying several options for expansion of the Geismar facility to ensure we can satisfy the strong demand in residential and commercial insulation and to maintain our position as the leading MDI supplier in the Americas region,” said Anthony P. Hankins, president of Huntsman Polyurethanes. “With the benefits of U.S. shale gas, the economics of investing in our U.S. facilities has improved significantly. The global market for MDI urethanes is expected to continue to grow strongly well into the next decade, and the proposed investment in the U.S. will complement our previously announced planned expansion in China.”
