LONDON (CNI)--Rokita's production site in Zaklady, Poland, is in the process of starting up as expected following a planned shutdown, a company source confirmed on Wednesday.


The chlorine plant will be the first to re-start, then propylene oxide (PO) and, by Friday, polyols capacity should be back in use. Full capacity is expected next week.


The units went down on 2 July for maintenance and work connected with an expansion programme. The 36,000 tonne/year polyol plant will increase nameplate capacity to 65,000 tonne/year by end 2005/beginning 2006. Nameplate PO capacity at the site is 25,000-30,000 tonne/year.
