BorsodChem, the largest MDI/TDI producer in Eastern Europe, has adopted thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers’s BiTAC filterpress technology

BorsodChem, the largest MDI/TDI producer in Eastern Europe, has adopted thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers’s filterpress technology, BiTAC, for more than 3 phases of their plant installations, starting with an installation of BiTAC® for 100,000 tons per year (NaOH-100%) in 2006.

Since then, BorsodChem has expanded and converted its plant using all three generations of BiTAC electrolyzers, BiTAC®, n-BiTAC and nx-BiTAC.

Phase Model No. of racks Start-up Production capacity
Phase 1 BiTAC-861 8 May 2006 100,000 MT/Y
Phase 2 n-BiTAC-861 4 Oct. 2006 50,000 MT/Y
Phase 3 n-BiTAC-861 4 Sep. 2013 50,000 MT/Y
Replacement nx-BiTAC-861 8 Oct. 2015 100,000 MT/Y

Note: All BiTAC phase 1 electrolyzers were replaced with nx-BiTAC elements, containing up-date technology, in 2015.

Today the plant capacity has reached 200,000 tons per year (NaOH-100%), making it one of the largest BiTAC plants in Europe.

BorsodChem has been enjoying the remarkable stability and reliable operation of BiTAC technologies in more than 10 years of trouble-free operation.
