Cruise ships and a chimney that’s a work of art
Since 1988, methylene diphenyl isocyanate (MDI), which is required for rigid foam, has been produced in Brunsbüttel. Due to the positive market development, Covestro decided in 2016 to convert an existing TDI plant to MDI production and plans to double MDI capacity at the site.
Major employerSince 2005 the company has been not just a manufacturer in the northern region, but also the operator of the Covestro Brunsbüttel Industrial Park, a state-of-the-art chemical site with outstanding infrastructure. Some 1,000 people work at the 420-hectare site. With around 600 employees, Covestro is one of the largest employers in the entire region. Many employees ride their bicycles to work from neighboring residential areas – in most cases crossing the Kiel Canal by ferry.

The Covestro Brunsbüttel Industrial Park also offers numerous opportunities for the general public to look behind the scenes. Roughly 1,000 people come to the site for a site tour each year.
