Toluene Diisocyanate (a.k.a. TDI) is an organic compound, in the aromatic isocyanate class. It is a colorless oily liquid, with sharp, pungent odor, soluble in acetone, benzene, and other organic solvents. TDI readily reacts with water at ambient temperature, forming insoluble urea compounds and a large amount of carbon dioxide gas. Like other isocyanates, TDI can be classified as potential human carcinogen. The main effects of hazardous exposures are occupational asthma and other lung problems, as well as irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin. It is largely produced, accounting for 34.1% of the global isocyanate market in 2000. It is mainly used in the manufacture of polyurethane products.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Toluene Diisocyanate production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2019).

Toluene Diisocyanate from Toluene via Phosgenation - Cost Analysis | TDI E23A

As the reports “TDI E12A” and “TDI E13A”, this report presents the economics of a typical liquid-phase phosgenation process for TDI production from toluene and chlorine in the USA. However, in this process, dinitrotoluene (DNT) is generated via dinitration of toluene.

Toluene Diisocyanate from Toluene via Phosgenation - Cost Analysis | TDI E24A

This report presents the economics of TDI production from toluene and chlorine via a process similar to the Bayer Gas-Phase Phosgenation (GPP) technology in the USA. Initially, toluene is dinitrated to dinitrotoluene (DNT). Then, DNT is hydrogenated to toluenediamine (TDA). Finally, TDA reacts with phosgene in gas phase to produce TDI. The phosgene used is generated from chlorine in an on-site unit.
