Northrop Grumman Engineering & Science Student Design Showcase


This design is for a plant that produces toluene-diisocyanate (TDI), an important raw material for the production of flexible polyurethane foams. This industry is a growing global market. The novelty of this process is the phosgenation of toluenediamine (TDA) in the gas phase rather than the traditional liquid phase.
