Targor GmbH has established a new plant to produce its own polypropylene impact copolymers in Wesseling, Germany, and recently helped Thai Petrochemical Industries launch a similar plant in Rayong, Thailand. The single-train plants , which took only 18 months to build, use Targor's Novolen gas-phase technology. Each has annual capacity of 496 million pounds. Targor, of Mainz, Germany, said it is licensing the technology and flexible-modular concept plants. Ta rgor is a jointly owned subsidiary of BASF AG of Ludwigshafen, Germany, and Hoechst AG of Frankfurt, Germany. The venture was formed last year by merging the PP businesses of the parent firms.
