Covestro’s facility in Antwerp produces high-grade plastics, intermediates and additives for plastics commonly used in the construction, electronic or automotive sectors. Key product lines include polycarbonates and intermediates for the production of polyurethanes.

The site was established in 1961 and with its world-scale activities as well as its strategic location in the heart of the Antwerp harbour, the company is a main production site for Covestro’s polycarbonates in Europe.  

With its innovative background and extensive knowhow, Covestro’s Antwerp base has become the company’s global ‘Competence Center’ for process development and technology associated with polycarbonates.

It means experts from Antwerp provide input into the planning, building and start-up of any new and into the optimization of any existing Covestro polycarbonates plant.
