The 272,000 tonne/year unit, and a line that accounts for about 75% of the total 205,000 tonne/year ouput at the second facility, produced on-spec product on 1 May after starting up late last week, he said.
The 53,000 tonne/year line at the smaller plant remains shut due to unfavourable economics, he added.
