German chemical company Covestro has finished construction of a new polycarbonate copolymers plant at its Antwerp site in Belgium.

The unit will use a solvent-free melt process in combination with a new reactor process, a technology platform that Covestro developed. This process reduces complexity of production, Covestro said, adding that the polycarbonates will initially be used for electronics and medical applications. The project, which cost "mid double-digit million euros," includes the construction of a pilot unit and production plant. It is the fifth polycarbonate line at the company's Antwerp site.
