Huntsman Starts New TEROL Polyols Plant in Taiwan

October 26 (2020

Huntsman Corporation commemorated the official start-up of a new 22,000-ton TEROL aromatic polyester polyols plant at its systems house in Kuan Yin, Taiwan, with an opening ceremony at the site.

The 3,600-square meter polyols plant expands Huntsman’s downstream polyurethanes capabilities in the Asia Pacific region and marks the first time Huntsman has manufactured its TEROL polyols outside the United States.

TEROL polyester polyols are critical components in the production of MDI-based polyurethane insulation systems – the most effective insulants available in the market, as measured by R-value. Insulation products based on TEROL polyols, include polyisocyanurate (PIR) boardstock systems, spray polyurethane foam (SPF) and pour-in-place applications, including entry doors, garage doors, coolers, refrigerators and commercial freezers.

To produce its TEROL polyols, Huntsman utilizes a proprietary process that upcycles scrap polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, some of which otherwise would have ended up in landfills, rivers and oceans.
