State-of-the-art industrial site in Brunsbüttel
Versatile industrial park operator
Strong winds and plain, vast landscapes: the far north of Germany has its own distinctive character. It also is a special place for Covestro. Not only does the company produce at its site in Brunsbüttel, it also operates the Covestro Brunsbüttel Industrial Park.
The state-of-the-art industrial site at the intersection of the Kiel Canal and the Elbe River offers an excellent infrastructure and a wide range of services. And with immediate access by road, rail, and ship to Hamburg, a gateway to the world market. The future in the north is bright for Covestro!
With around 660 employees, Covestro is one of the largest employers in the region. The rigid foam component methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) is produced at the site. This is an important precursor for polyurethane foam, which is used, among other things, as an efficient insulating material for insulating buildings and refrigeration equipment. Global demand for MDI is on the rise, which is why Covestro started up a new MDI plant in Brunsbüttel in early 2020.
This plant is setting new standards with regard to energy efficiency, environmental compatibility, and productivity. Since it has been put into operation, the MDI capacity on site has doubled to around 400,000 metric tons per year. This makes Brunsbüttel one of the three largest production sites for the foam component in Europe and ensures MDI supplies for all of its customers worldwide.
